[Solved] python mpl_toolkits installation issue

After command pip install mpl_toolkits I receive next error:

Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement mpl_toolkits (from versions: )

No matching distribution found for mpl_toolkits

I tried to google, but nothing helps. How can I solve this?

Solution #1:

It is not on PyPI and you should not be installing it via pip. If you have matplotlib installed, you should be able to import mpl_toolkits directly:

$ pip install --upgrade matplotlib

$ python
>>> import mpl_toolkits

Solution #2:

It doesn’t work on Ubuntu 16.04, it seems that some libraries have been forgotten in the python installation package on this one. You should use package manager instead.


Uninstall matplotlib from pip then install it again with apt-get

python 2:

sudo pip uninstall matplotlib
sudo apt-get install python-matplotlib

python 3:

sudo pip3 uninstall matplotlib
sudo apt-get install python3-matplotlib

Solution #3:

if anyone has a problem on Mac, can try this

sudo pip install --upgrade matplotlib --ignore-installed six
Respondent: Giulio Imperato

Solution #4:

I can’t comment due to the lack of reputation, but if you are on arch linux, you should be able to find the corresponding libraries on the arch repositories directly. For example for mpl_toolkits.basemap:

pacman -S python-basemap
