How to install the latest Octave for Linux

The latest version of GNU Octave built for all supported Ubuntu releases. GNU Octave is normally distributed with Ubuntu, this PPA is for you if you have a need to use a newer version of Octave than what you can already get from your installed version of Ubuntu.

Simply follow the instructions below to add this PPA to your system and install the octave package.

For Ubuntu 12.10

Step 1: On the PPA’s overview page, look for the heading that reads Adding this PPA to your system. Make a note of the PPA’s location, which looks like:

ppa:gwibber-daily/ppa

Step 2: Open a terminal and enter:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:user/ppa-name

Replace ppa:user/ppa-name with the PPA’s location that you noted above.

Step 3: Now, as a one-off, you should tell your system to pull down the latest list of software from each archive it knows about, including the PPA you just added:

sudo apt-get update

Now you’re ready to start installing software from the PPA!
