One hot gym prediction or anomaly - plotting error

#1

Getting the following error when running python run.py --plot:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "run.py", line 151, in <module>
    runModel(GYM_NAME, plot=plot)
  File "run.py", line 141, in runModel
    runIoThroughNupic(inputData, model, gymName, plot)
  File "run.py", line 98, in runIoThroughNupic
    output = nupic_output.NuPICPlotOutput([gymName])
  File "/home/neo/Projects/nupic/examples/opf/clients/hotgym/prediction/one_gym/nupic_output.py", line 116, in __init__
    plt.ion()
NameError: global name 'plt' is not defined

This is because matplotlib is unreliable in many environments (yours!).

You need to figure how to get it installed on your OS in python properly.

Ah, getting closer to the issue:

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/pyplot.py", line 115, in <module>
    _backend_mod, new_figure_manager, draw_if_interactive, _show = pylab_setup()
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/__init__.py", line 63, in pylab_setup
    [backend_name], 0)
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/backends/backend_tkagg.py", line 4, in <module>
    from . import tkagg  # Paint image to Tk photo blitter extension.

    from six.moves import tkinter as Tk
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/six.py", line 203, in load_module
    mod = mod._resolve()
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/six.py", line 115, in _resolve
    return _import_module(self.mod)
  File "/home/neo/.local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/six.py", line 82, in _import_module
    __import__(name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/lib-tk/Tkinter.py", line 42, in <module>
    raise ImportError, str(msg) + ', please install the python-tk package'
ImportError: No module named _tkinter, please install the python-tk package

Run:

sudo apt-get install python-tk

And now it is working.
Thank you very much for the clue!
