I am stuck with installing a plugin for QGIS namend "Statist".

I get the following message when starting QGIS: "Missing matplotlib Python module". So basically this question relates to all plugins for QGIS using the matplotlib python module.

I have tried to stick to every advice on stackexchange in order to install the whole QGIS package on OS X correctly. However, I don't have any clue why QGIS cannot find the properly installed matplotlib /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages directory.

I installed matplotlib with sudo pip install matplotlib.

I know that some questions already relate to his problem, but none helped me with solving this problem. I appreciate every hint or workaround for this problem. Thank you.

I use

  • OS X 10.7.4 QGIS 1.8.0-Lisboa
  • I've installed all necessary QGIS-related stuff from kyngchaos in the latest version.
  • QGIS had some problems with recognized rgdal first. I used the following advice – then it worked properly.

This is what i get when i check for all versions installed (while "USER" is my userdirectory):
