I am currently practicing matplotlib. This is the first example I practice.
#!/usr/bin/python import matplotlib.pyplot as plt radius = [1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0] area = [3.14159, 12.56636, 28.27431, 50.26544] plt.plot(radius, area) plt.show()
When I run this script with
python ./plot_test.py, it shows plot correctly. However, I run it by itself,
./plot_test.py, it throws the followings:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "./plot_test.py", line 3, in <module> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt ImportError: No module named matplotlib.pyplot
Does python look for matplotlib in different locations?
The environment is:
Mac OS X 10.8.4 64bit built-in python 2.7
numpy, scipy, matplotlib is installed with:
sudo port install py27-numpy py27-scipy py27-matplotlib py27-ipython +notebook py27-pandas py27-sympy py27-nose
You have two pythons installed on your machine, one is the standard python that comes with Mac OSX and the second is the one you installed with ports (this is the one that has
matplotlib installed in its library, the one that comes with macosx does not).
Is the standard mac python and since it doesn’t have
matplotlib you should always start your script with the one installed with ports.
python your_script.py works then change the
Or put the full path to the python interpreter that has the
matplotlib installed in its library.
