I have read the "Readme" but I am totally stupid. So could anyone please tell me how I install it on Linux?


I know how to download the Zip. And well, that is it then. Hopefully someone can help :-)

I don't know where the $PYTHONPATH is. But well, when I know where to place it (and how), I have to use this peace of code, right?

 sudo python setup.py install

And then everything should be done? And I can use it with placing the "from ..." and the "tikz-..."?

Thank you very much in advance.

  • Yes :-) ... I don't know where to place the unzipped file. – Amelie B. Blackstone Jul 1 '15 at 21:02

Since matplotlib2tikz is on PyPi, you can install it by

sudo -H pip install matplotlib2tikz
