Did you try to run Synaptic Package Manager from the System /
Administration menu then use search to find matplotlib and install it?
This also takes care of installing dependencies. Then the default
Python /usr/bin/python (which is version 2.6.5 on Ubuntu 10.04) should
work. I just tried it here with your test and it worked both in the
Python Shell and when debugging it.
In general on Linux you should use the distribution-provided package
manager. If you do want a different matplotlib version you could
install Python from sources into a different location and add numpy,
matplotlib, etc. But there probably is not much point in that.
I should note that if you already installed numpy and matplotlib from
sources into /usr/lib/python2.6 then you may very well run into problems
installing via Synaptic if it decides it cannot overwrite files. I
would expect some error messages if that is the case.
