This is a common problem, and can be hard to track down--but by no means impossible. With Windows it's often better to use this Scientific Python Distributions with their own package manager like Anaconda:. Eric, Thanks for responding so quickly. Windows doesn't know this command. Then go to next step.
Note Matplotlib depends on non-Python libraries. You can verify this using terminal or graphical way. For example, which default backend to use, whether some of the optional libraries that Matplotlib ships with are installed, and so on. To start using this and see more information: docs. We provide a file which you can use to customize the build process. Instead, as suggested, it is caused by some detritus from earlier installations, either on your disk or in your. .
Since there is no canonical Windows package manager, the methods for building FreeType, zlib, and libpng from source code are documented as a build script at. Python supports modules and packages, which encourages program modularity and code reuse. Instead, as suggested, it is caused by some detritus from earlier installations, either on your disk or in your. Required library that ships with basemap Geometry Engine - Open Source library 3. Matplotlib is packaged for almost every major Linux distribution. Included in Windows binary installers. When building from source, must be built and installed separately from basemap see build instructions below.
The following example illustrates how to install libpng and FreeType using brew: The Python shipped from is compiled with Visual Studio 2015 for 3. Python is simple and easy to learn syntax emphasizes readability and therefore reduces the cost of program maintenance. I have trouble specifically on the third step, but I am not sure. Having said that, I would strongly recommend that you install the tools and libraries described in the next section before you start building Python applications for real-world use. Virtual Environments A Virtual Environment is a tool to keep the dependencies required by different projects in separate places, by creating virtual Python environments for them. Then go to next step.
I re-ran the example and I still get the same result. To easily install a complete Scientific Python stack, see below. If you found this tutorial helpful then Like and Share. This is a common problem, and can be hard to track down--but by no means impossible. Dependencies Requirements These are external packages which you will need to install before installing basemap. In this article, I am going to explain how to install Python 3.
The step shows that I need the command prompt to be go inside the 'geos-3. I suspect that you at some point install mpl using more than one method and there are stale files left around. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. If you got something else then feel free to comment. If not using pkg-config in particular on Windows , you may need to set the include path to the FreeType, libpng, and zlib headers and link path to the FreeType, libpng, and zlib libraries explicitly, if they are not in standard locations. Have a question about this project? This means you can set them if your toolchain is prefixed.
I think the fundamental issue here and in other similar issue is that the directory structure depends on the installation method. I had to add conda install pyqt, but then it worked fine, as expected. I suggest starting from a fresh environment and never working in the 'base' environment. The sample program is attached to this posting. I have the latest version of Anaconda and Matplotlib installed. This page is a remixed version of , which is available under the same license.
This file will be particularly useful to those packaging Matplotlib. If you are on Linux, you might prefer to use your package manager. You can also use to make it easier to manage your virtual environments. Installation Download either Windows binary installers or source tarballs. If you have installed prerequisites to nonstandard places and need to inform Matplotlib where they are, edit setupext. Python extensions should be compiled with the same compiler, see e.
