- Windows Octave installer
brew install octave
apt-add-repository ppa:octave/stable apt update apt install octave liboctave-dev
If system Octave is already installed, these commands will uninstall your old Octave and install the latest stable version of Octave.
Install Octave packages by typing in Octave:
pkg -verbose install -forge specfun
to install the
specfun package, and so on.
Prerequisite Octave Packages will automatically be installed, though outside libraries will need to be installed by you if required by an Octave package.
The loaded packages have an asterisk next to their name.
Stop autoloading packages
Octave might get misconfigured to load all packages automatically at startup. This substantially slows down Octave startup time.
You can stop Octave package autoload.
