I have used this code to draw a picture using matplotlib.pyplot sagenb plots this nicely but i couldn't get this in my latex document when i use sagetex.

\begin{sagesilent} import matplotlib.pyplot as plt plt.plot([1,2,3,4],[1, 3, 2, 4]) plt.savefig('test.png') \end{sagesilent}

i get this error message:

** Error in Sage code on line 53 of sagetextest.tex! Traceback follows. Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 69, in <module> sagetex.plot(_sage_const_3 , plt.printfig('test.png'), format='notprovided', epsmagick=False) AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'printfig'

** Running Sage on sagetextest.sage failed! Fix sagetextest.tex and try again.

Yes, it's possible to integrate matplotlib plots in my latex document using sagetex. But first: there's no code here to see what is wrong. A message "Unknown environment "sagesilent" sounds like you haven't put \usepackage{sagetex} in the preamble (or maybe you haven't been able to successfully get latex and Sage to communicate. Also it sounds like you've used printfig when that command isn't available to you--and you should indent 4 spaces for code to show up nicely formatted in your question.

You can find a working example of sagetex with mathplotlib over on TeXStackExchange here: the answer by DJP has code you can copy/paste along with the working output that results.
