Teqcplot was written for matplotlib (Python plotting library) version 1.3, but you have a later version installed (probably version 2 or 3). Try editing and replace the word “axisbg” with “facecolor”.

Emne: teqcplot error

I have ununbu 19 with python 2.7.16
I am trying to use teqcplot with some GPS file
I used teqcplot of 2015
I used several trails for difference plots.
Example command is:
% ./ +skyplot QENA2700.azi QENA2700.ele
Here is the error output. 10Sep2015
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 967, in <module>
  File "./", line 516, in makePlot
    ax = fig.add_axes([0.1, 0.1,  0.8, 0.8], projection='polar', axisbg=bgcolor)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/matplotlib/", line 1149, in add_axes
    a = projection_class(self, rect, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/matplotlib/projections/", line 854, in __init__
    Axes.__init__(self, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/matplotlib/axes/", line 541, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/matplotlib/", line 888, in update
    for k, v in props.items()]
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/matplotlib/", line 881, in _update_property
    raise AttributeError('Unknown property %s' % k)
AttributeError: Unknown property axisbg
Any help or clue to solve this issue.
