matplotlib not displaying graphics in opensuse 10.2


I'm trying to get various python scientific computing tools working on opensuse 10.2. Most of them exist on the buildservice (besides python 2.5, in the basic distribution of course). I can get numpy, scipy, ipython to work, but I'm having trouble with matplotlib.

I install matplotlib from the buildservice, can load it with 'from pylab import *', and then plot something. You then use the command show() to display the actual graphics window. show() doesn't display anything, from either the straight python shell, ipython, or idle.

Any idea what gives?

In opensuse 10.1, I remember having some problem with the default python distro not including tcl/tk support. Thus idle wouldn't work out of the box. But in 10.2 idle does. My memory on this area is fuzzy. May be related.
