TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
hello,
 the issue i'm experiencing is local to my laptop ( the other machines i have run examples just fine).
I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.
AZ

now if i get the simplest plot :

print("imported")
plt.plot([1,2,4,1])
print("plot is done")
plt.show()
print("show is done")

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Benjamin Root
How did you install Tkinter? Have you tested any other backends? Does this happen for just the head-less "Agg" backend set as default?

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
Tkinter was most likely installed as part of rpm install.
Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:

I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Benjamin Root
Just to make absolutely clear, you set the default backend in your matplotlibrc file to "agg" and it still hung on you? If that is the case, then the problem isn't tkinter.

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:
In pycharm pyplot is not been recognized as part of matplotlib when i "import matplotlib.pyplot. yet the script doesnt crash on import statement...

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Yes. I can confirm that

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

>Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? 

Im not sure what do you mean?
I have a xwindow terminal , nothing but Firefox is up.(well a tons of regular background processes).

2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
this is what i have installed:
[az@hp src]$ rpm -qa | grep tkint
python3-tkinter-3.5.3-6.fc24.x86_64
tkinter-2.7.13-2.fc24.x86_64
[az@hp src]$


[az@hp src]$ pip3 list | grep tk
DEPRECATION: The default format will switch to columns in the future. You can use --format=(legacy|columns) (or define a format=(legacy|columns) in your pip.conf under the [list] section) to disable this warning.


rpm -qa | grep matplot
python-matplotlib-data-fonts-1.5.2-0.1.rc2.fc24.noarch
python3-matplotlib-1.5.2-0.1.rc2.fc24.x86_64
python3-matplotlib-tk-1.5.2-0.1.rc2.fc24.x86_64
python-matplotlib-data-1.5.2-0.1.rc2.fc24.noarch

basically i removed the pip3 installed matplot and felt back to rpm provided in hope to have that config working.

hello,
 the issue i'm experiencing is local to my laptop ( the other machines i have run examples just fine).
I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
I tried PyQT5 with the same unhappy results:

First, i  verified that pyqt5 works -
 
PyQt5 (5.9.1)                     - Python bindings for the Qt cross platform UI and application toolkit
  INSTALLED: 5.9
  LATEST:    5.9.1

ran http://www.thehackeruniversity.com/2014/01/23/pyqt5-beginner-tutorial/ -  exampled worked with no issues. Everything got resolved in pycharm.

next installed the matplot backend:
   python3-matplotlib-qt5.x86_64

ran examples from here https://pythonspot.com/en/pyqt5-matplotlib/ - and it hanged.
pycharm is complaining about :
from matplotlib.backends.backend_qt5agg import FigureCanvasQTAgg as FigureCanvas
from matplotlib.figure import Figure
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
"can not find reference 'backends' in __init__.py'
' unresolved reference backend_qt5agg'
'cant reference 'figure' '
'no module named pyplot'

basically i removed the pip3 installed matplot and felt back to rpm provided in hope to have that config working.

Yes. I can confirm that

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

>Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? 

Im not sure what do you mean?
I have a xwindow terminal , nothing but Firefox is up.(well a tons of regular background processes).

Just to make absolutely clear, you set the default backend in your matplotlibrc file to "agg" and it still hung on you? If that is the case, then the problem isn't tkinter.

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:
In pycharm pyplot is not been recognized as part of matplotlib when i "import matplotlib.pyplot. yet the script doesnt crash on import statement...

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Jody Klymak
Andrew, 

Can I *strongly* suggest you just use anaconda, unless you have some compelling reason not to?  

It takes care of most of these packaging headaches.  I guess I’m ignorant about pycharm, but I’m pretty sure people use it w/ pycharm.

Cheers,   Jody

Yes. I can confirm that

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

>Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? 

Im not sure what do you mean?
I have a xwindow terminal , nothing but Firefox is up.(well a tons of regular background processes).

Just to make absolutely clear, you set the default backend in your matplotlibrc file to "agg" and it still hung on you? If that is the case, then the problem isn't tkinter.

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:
In pycharm pyplot is not been recognized as part of matplotlib when i "import matplotlib.pyplot. yet the script doesnt crash on import statement...

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:
In pycharm pyplot is not been recognized as part of matplotlib when i "import matplotlib.pyplot. yet the script doesnt crash on import statement...

hello,

I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Andrew, 

Can I *strongly* suggest you just use anaconda, unless you have some compelling reason not to?  

It takes care of most of these packaging headaches.  I guess I’m ignorant about pycharm, but I’m pretty sure people use it w/ pycharm.

ran http://www.thehackeruniversity.com/2014/01/23/pyqt5-beginner-tutorial/ -  exampled worked with no issues. Everything got resolved in pycharm.

next installed the matplot backend:

ran examples from here https://pythonspot.com/en/pyqt5-matplotlib/ - and it hanged.

One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

hello,
 the issue i'm experiencing is local to my laptop ( the other machines i have run examples just fine).
I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
i'll take a look @ conda. Thank you.

Meanwhile. i resolved the problem with "missing" plot, backend packages from matplot in pycharm - the /usr/lib64/python3.5 was absent from the pycharm's config.
now i don't have any warnings from from pycharm - "what a charm!" (sorry, couldn't resists) . But the example still won't work.

// another Tito's shot maybe due...

Andrew, 

Can I *strongly* suggest you just use anaconda, unless you have some compelling reason not to?  

It takes care of most of these packaging headaches.  I guess I’m ignorant about pycharm, but I’m pretty sure people use it w/ pycharm.

Cheers,   Jody

ran http://www.thehackeruniversity.com/2014/01/23/pyqt5-beginner-tutorial/ -  exampled worked with no issues. Everything got resolved in pycharm.

next installed the matplot backend:
   python3-matplotlib-qt5.x86_64

ran examples from here https://pythonspot.com/en/pyqt5-matplotlib/ - and it hanged.
pycharm is complaining about :

Yes. I can confirm that

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

Im not sure what do you mean?
I have a xwindow terminal , nothing but Firefox is up.(well a tons of regular background processes).

Just to make absolutely clear, you set the default backend in your matplotlibrc file to "agg" and it still hung on you? If that is the case, then the problem isn't tkinter.

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

hello,
 the issue i'm experiencing is local to my laptop ( the other machines i have run examples just fine).
I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.

Re: TkAgg won't plot - how to debug?

Andrew Z
another take:

rebuild of the font cache -
recreated ~/.cache/matplotlib
ran :
 more ./main.py
import matplotlib
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

print(matplotlib.rcParams['backend'])

plt.plot([1,2,3],[5,7,4])
plt.show(block=False)
# plt.show()

btw, when i run "fc-list" i see fonts only from /usr/share.  Is this expected ?

Meanwhile. i resolved the problem with "missing" plot, backend packages from matplot in pycharm - the /usr/lib64/python3.5 was absent from the pycharm's config.
now i don't have any warnings from from pycharm - "what a charm!" (sorry, couldn't resists) . But the example still won't work.

// another Tito's shot maybe due...

Andrew, 

Can I *strongly* suggest you just use anaconda, unless you have some compelling reason not to?  

It takes care of most of these packaging headaches.  I guess I’m ignorant about pycharm, but I’m pretty sure people use it w/ pycharm.

ran http://www.thehackeruniversity.com/2014/01/23/pyqt5-beginner-tutorial/ -  exampled worked with no issues. Everything got resolved in pycharm.

next installed the matplot backend:

ran examples from here https://pythonspot.com/en/pyqt5-matplotlib/ - and it hanged.
pycharm is complaining about :

Yes. I can confirm that

I used pycharms "scratch files" and typed directly in the interpreter- always same result. I saw this naming issue whileresearching my problem. My file is plot.py and works perfectly fine on any other machine but this.(drives me mad, honestly). Directory is /home/az/work/nja/src. Also consistent across machines (minus username)

Im not sure what do you mean?
I have a xwindow terminal , nothing but Firefox is up.(well a tons of regular background processes).

Just to make absolutely clear, you set the default backend in your matplotlibrc file to "agg" and it still hung on you? If that is the case, then the problem isn't tkinter.

Some possibilities are

1) a massive font database that matplotlib is trying to build a cache for
2) import of matplotlib from somewhere else unexpected (which would explain pycharm's behavior), and that file/module is misbehaving. We have seen instances in the past where users would name their plotting porting of their code "matplotlib.py" or "pylab.py" or some such, and then start to wonder why their code doesn't work properly.

Have you looked to see if there are other programs that are running during the import stage? One thing matplotlib does for the first import is to create a font cache, and it does this by using some fc-list program, iirc. This can take a long time on some machines that have adobe's font collection installed, for example, but that is usually a Windows thing....

Backends - not really. I do know that with mpld3and agg  the scripts hang.
Ihave reinstalled matplot using rpm ( rpm comes only in 1.5 version) and with pip3.
Today i tried on the office machine (fedora 25). Rpm brings only matplot1.5.

maybe 2 installed locally using pip3 messes with 1.5 leftover or libraries.
Not sure how to validate this idea though..
Probably unrelated:
In pycharm pyplot is not been recognized as part of matplotlib when i "import matplotlib.pyplot. yet the script doesnt crash on import statement...

I installed using pip3 into --user directory.
but i also remember that i used dnf to get tkInnter installed:
rpm -qa | grep tkin

hello,
 the issue i'm experiencing is local to my laptop ( the other machines i have run examples just fine).
I described it here https://www.mail-archive.com/python-list@.../msg432343.html in details.
i searched around, but none of the proposed workarounds helped.

Is there a  way to enable some-kind of debugging or verbose output to see what exactly is happening behind the scene?

Thank you.
AZ
