$ rosrun rqt_plot rqt_plot [DEBUG] rqt_plot.plot: import of PyQtGraphDataPlot failed (trying other backends)

This is on a fresh install of U13.04 and ROS-Hydro. rqt_plot does revert back to MatPlot, but I would like to know how to install the above library, since I assume it's better. ;)

Install the .deb from the site, since it's not available from the Ubuntu repositories.

Yes, that's the only way to install rqt_plot's dependency for now, due to the limitation discussed [here](
