[IPython-User] Interactive plotting in ipython does not work
Mon Mar 7 14:57:14 CST 2011
I'm having problems getting the interactive-mode plotting to work in ipython. I'd like to do:
and have a line appear on the screen. Currently, however, nothing shows up until I explicitly type show(). However, interactive mode is set:
In : matplotlib.is_interactive()
If I manually force redraws by typing draw() a bunch, plots appear on the screen, but the behavior is not always what I expect (sometimes it takes several draw()'s before my plots appear). My ipython/python version information is:
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Mar 4 2011, 10:08:54)
If I set my .matplotlibrc file to be:
backend : GTKCairo
interactive : True
then interactive plotting works in the normal python interpreter, but I lose all of ipython's useful features.
Does anyone know what's going on here? I'd like to provide more informative debug information, but I don't know my way around well enough to be helpful.
Thanks a lot,
