The recommended way for installing Octave and Octave-Forge packages on GNU/Linux systems is via each distribution package installation system.= Distributions =
More detailed instructions followThe recommended way for installing Octave on GNU/Linux systems is via each distribution's package installation system. If this is for some reason not possible, or the available Octave version too old, consider using a [[#Distribution_independent|distribution independent]] approach described below or [[Building]] Octave from source.
== Arch Linux == : ''Main article: [[Octave for Arch Linux]]''  pacman -S octave ==Debian and Debian-based (such as Ubuntu)==
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Debian systems]]''
Simply apt install octave apt install liboctave-dev # development files == Fedora == : ''Main article: [[Octave from your distribution repositoryfor Red Hat Linux systems]]''
apt dnf install octave dnf install octave-devel # development files
For old versions of Ubuntu that only supply old versions of Octave, consider using Octave's PPA. For more details, see the [[Debian]] specific instructions page.== Gentoo ==
There are also Debian packages for each of the Octave Forge packages, named {{codeline|octave<pkgname>}}, for example {{codeline|octave emerge --ask sci-image}} and {{codeline|mathematics/octave-statistics}} for the image processing and statistics package respectively. A complete list of them can be found with the command
apt search octave-forge== openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise ==
=Fedora=: ''Main article: [[Octave for openSUSE]]''
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]'' zypper install octave zypper install octave-devel # development files
The packages can be installed using the dnf command, they are:== Red Hat Enterprise/CentOS ==
*octave*octave-devel: ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]''
{{Codeline| yum install epel-release yum install octave yum install octave-devel}} contains the octave headers and {{Path|mkoctfile}} script and is really only needed by users who are developing code that is to be dynamically linked to octave. {{Codeline|octave}} can be installed with the command: # development files
If the above does not work, follow [ dnf How_can_I_use_these_extra_packages.3F these instructions] to set up your system to install octavepackages from EPEL.
=Gentoo= Slackware ==
: ''Main article: [[Octave is available through Gentoofor Slackware]]''s package management system, Portage:
# emerge --syncAdd USE flag 'curl' into your <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code> file to enable remote Octave-Forge packages fetching sci-mathematics/octave curland emerge Octave # emerge octaveSince Octave ver. > 3.4.0 is able to fetch Octave-Forge packages from remote repository, packages ''octave-forge'' or ''g-octave'' are no more needed.= Distribution independent =
Before installing any Octave-Forge package, in Octave command prompt Using a distribution independent approach is particularly useful if you have an older GNU/Linux distribution or if you must type pkg -forge listand then install do not have root access on your favourite packagessystem. TypicallyA common drawback of this approach is, you have to start that these solutions are running in some kind of sandbox. Thus limitations in the communication with the underlying system may exist. pkg install -forge generalFor example, executing system binaries outside the sandbox might be impossible.
=Red Hat Enterprise/CentOS= Docker ==
* More info: ''Main articlehttps: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]''//* Development:
Octave is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions through the [https: docker pull mtmiller// EPEL] repository. This section applies to CentOS, Scientific Linux, and other Red Hat Enterprise rebuild distributions as well.octave
'''Method 1 - the quick way:'''== Flatpak ==
yum install epel-release* More info: yum install * Development:
'''Method 2 - if the above does not work:''' flatpak install flathub org.octave.Octave
First, follow [ these instructions] to set up your system to install packages from EPEL. For example,== Guix ==
# wget <nowiki>http* More info: https://url/<0/nowiki> # yum localinstall epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm
Once the EPEL repository has been enabled, you can follow the rest of the [[#Fedora|instructions for Fedora]] to install Octave using yum.== Homebrew on Linux ==<div id="Linuxbrew"></div>
Note that EPEL intentionally does not follow new releases "Homebrew on Linux" was formerly a fork known as closely as other distributionsLinuxbrew. Consequently, It is possible to install the version current release of Octave provided by EPEL may be several months or years out of date. There are plans for the Octave maintainers to provide support development version and binary RPMs for enterprise GNU/Linux distributions; contact the [ maintainers mailing list] for more informationany needed dependencies within your home directory.
=SUSE * More info: and openSUSE=* Development:
: ''Main article: [[Octave for openSUSE]]'' brew install octave
Binary packages for Octave are provided by all versions of openSUSE. It can be installed by command:== MXE ==
zypper in * More info: [[MXE]]* Development:
Latest stable version of Octave and Octave-Forge are available on Science repository. For details see [[openSUSE]] specific wiki page.== Snap ==
=Arch Linux=* More info:* Development:
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Arch Linux]]'' snap install octave --beta
Updated Octave's version is in the extra repository. It can be installed by typing:= Building from source =
# pacman -S octave: ''Main article: [[Building]]''
