Dear list,
I am having problems installing matplotlib (from source) and fipy.
I had installed numpy from source and it is running well:
:~$ python -c "import numpy; print numpy.__version__"
After being trying to solve this problem on matplotlib list, I was
recommended to ask numpy list.
I copy-paste the errors below and forward the mails from matplotlib users.

creating /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/FiPy-2.1.2-py2.7.egg
Extracting FiPy-2.1.2-py2.7.egg to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
FiPy 2.1.2 is already the active version in easy-install.pth

I do not understand why matplotlib can not see numpy. Please, see the
forwarded message. My notebook description:

Thank in advance for your help
