pynlo on Linux Mint running on i7 Macbook Pro 4GB

Got a Macbook for doing some tests, computations etc.
OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8
Intel Core i7
2.66 GHz
2 cores

Made it dual boot with Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon using rEFInd, installed Anaconda 2.7 for pyNLO.

Anaconda installed with no issues. But pip install needed
apt-get install python-pip
apt-get install python-setuptools
apt-get install python-dev

pip install pyfftw
gave permission errors, so did
pip install pyfftw --user
apt-get install libfftw3-dev

python did not work - no module named matplotlib
pip install matplotlib --user

Then needed
apt-get install python-tk

Finally working. But colours were different in the pcolor plot.

Changed colormap of pcolor using
cmap=plt.get_cmap('viridis') inside pcolor function call.

On my Athlon 32 bit Windows XP laptop - - runs for 15:33 = 933 sec and Mem Error
On the i7 - the same script runs for 1:42 = 102 sec, no Mem Error

So, more than 9x faster.
