[Matplotlib-users] backend for matplotlib on NAS Lou

Hi all,

I'm just getting started with running hydro calculations on NASA's Pleiades
cluster.  To view the results one can use the Lou nodes (dedicated to data
analysis).  I installed anaconda so that I could use matplotlib, but so far
I can't find a backend that works.  Qt5Agg leads to an error from
libpthread about the GLIBC version.  Qt4 fails with "No module named
PyQt4".  Anyway, does anyone have a solution to this?

Of course, I could ask this of the NAS folks, but I thought it was likely
that someone on this list had dealt with this problem.
