The latest version of matplotlib is 1.1.0 and it brings new modules like matplotlib.animation(I get marks in exams only if I use this module to animate(crazy isn't it! ))

How can I install the latest matplotlib in sagemath 4.8.3 x86-64 version?

Try this (from the command line):

sage -i http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/jason/matplotlib-1.1.0.spkg

It might also help to apply the patch from Sage trac ticket 11915.

I just tried out the following and seems to work for me. I get a bunch of warnings so I am not sure it is fully functional but the I can import matplotlib.animation

On your linux terminal type(assuming sage is in your PATH)

sage -sh

You will get a sage shell. In that type

easy_install -U matplotlib

That should do it.

Edit: For some reason plt.show() does not work for me. And im_ani.save does not work unless you have ffmpeg installed. So install ffmpeg on you machine and save the movie in mp4 format.
