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.
=Debian and Debian-based (such as Ubuntu)= Arch Linux ==
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Debian systemsArch Linux]]''
Simply install Octave from your distribution repository pacman -S octave
apt install octave== Debian and Debian-based (such as Ubuntu) ==
For old versions of Ubuntu that only supply old versions of Octave, consider using Octave: ''s PPA. For more details, see the Main article: [[Octave for Debiansystems]] specific instructions page.''
There are also Debian packages for each of the Octave Forge packages, named {{codeline|octave-<pkg>}}, for example {{codeline|octave-image}} and {{codeline| apt install octave-statistics}} for the image processing and statistics package respectively. A complete list of them can be found with the command  apt search octaveinstall liboctave-forgedev # development files
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]''
The packages can be installed using the dnf command, they are:install octave dnf install octave-devel # development files
*octave*octave-devel== Gentoo ==
{{Codeline|octave emerge --ask sci-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|mathematics/octave}} can be installed with the command:
# dnf install octave== openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise ==
=Gentoo=: ''Main article: [[Octave for openSUSE]]''
Octave is available through Gentoo's package management system, Portage: zypper install octave zypper install octave-devel # development files
# 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. Before installing any Octave-Forge package, in Octave command prompt you must type pkg -forge listand then install your favourite packages. Typically, you have to start with pkg install -forge general ==Red Hat Enterprise/CentOS==
: ''Main article: [[Octave for Red Hat Linux systems]]''
Octave is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions through the [ EPEL] repository. This section applies to CentOS, Scientific Linux, and other Red Hat Enterprise rebuild distributions as well. yum install epel-release yum install octave'''Method 1 yum install octave- the quick way:'''devel # development files
yum If the above does not work, follow [ these instructions] to set up your system to install epel-release yum install octavepackages from EPEL.
'''Method 2 - if the above does not work:'''== Slackware ==
First, follow : ''Main article: [ these instructions[Octave for Slackware]] to set up your system to install packages from EPEL. For example,''
# wget <nowiki>http://url/to/latest/epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm</nowiki> # yum localinstall epel-release-6-7.noarch.rpm= Distribution independent =
Once Using a distribution independent approach is particularly useful if you have an older GNU/Linux distribution or if you do not have root access on your system. A common drawback of this approach is, that these solutions are running in some kind of sandbox. Thus limitations in the EPEL repository has been enabledcommunication with the underlying system may exist. For example, you can follow the rest of executing system binaries outside the [[#Fedora|instructions for Fedora]] to install Octave using yumsandbox might be impossible.
Note that EPEL intentionally does not follow new releases as closely as other distributions. Consequently, the version of Octave provided by EPEL may be several months or years out of date. There are plans for the Octave maintainers to provide support and binary RPMs for enterprise GNU/Linux distributions; contact the [ maintainers mailing list] for more information.== Docker ==
=SUSE Linux and openSUSE=* More info:* Development:
: ''Main article: [[Octave for openSUSE]]'' docker pull mtmiller/octave
Binary packages for Octave are provided by all versions of openSUSE. It can be installed by command:== Flatpak ==
zypper in * More info:* Development:
Latest stable version of Octave and Octave-Forge are available on Science repository flatpak install flathub org. For details see [[openSUSE]] specific wiki pageoctave.Octave

Updated Octave's version is in the extra repository. It can be installed by typing:  # pacman -S octave ==Homebrew on Linux==
<div id="Linuxbrew"></div>
Octave is provided by the [ Homebrew] package manager, which is a cross-distribution packaging system. "Homebrew on Linux" was formerly a fork known as Linuxbrew. It is possible to install the current release of Octave or the development version and any needed dependencies within your home directory. This is particularly useful if you have an older GNU/Linux distribution or if you do not have root access. Homebrew can be installed with the command:
* More info: /Homebrew-c "$(curl on-fsSL Linux* Development: https://rawformulae.githubusercontentbrew.comsh/Linuxbrewformula/install/master/"octave
It can be added to your shell environment and future login environments with: brew install octave
test -d ~/.linuxbrew && eval $(~/.linuxbrew/bin/brew shellenv) test -d /home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew && eval $(/home/linuxbrew/.linuxbrew/bin/brew shellenv) test -r ~/.bash_profile && echo "eval \$($(brew --prefix)/bin/brew shellenv)" >>~/.bash_profile echo "eval \$($(brew --prefix)/bin/brew shellenv)" >>~/.profile== MXE ==
Once set up, Octave can be installed with the command* More info:[[MXE]]* Development:
brew install octave== Snap ==
=Docker=* More info:* Development:
Octave is available as a Docker container. This can be used to easily run Octave in a well snap install octave -defined, minimal GNU/Linux container. It can be used as a standard interactive Octave shell or to run scripts, but it may be mostly of interest to developers for use in automated build, test, or CI environments.-beta
