If you're running FreeBSD you have two options: you can build from source (via ports) or get the precompiled package:
     −
*Using ports:

The easiest way to obtain GNU Octave is to install the precompiled package as root user:
Make sure you have your port tree updated. Check FreeBSD documentation about how to do that. Then, as root, type:  
+
 
 +
pkg_add -r octave
 +
 
 +
Another possibility is to build Octave from source via Ports<ref>https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/math/octave</ref>. Make sure you have your Port tree updated. Check [https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports.html FreeBSD documentation] about how to do that. Then, as root, type:  
 +
 
 
  cd /usr/ports/math/octave  
 
  cd /usr/ports/math/octave  
 
  make install clean  
 
  make install clean  
   −
After a while you should have your octave ready to use.

Some [[Octave Forge]] packages can be installed in the same way:
   −
*Using packages:
+
  pkg_add -r octave-forge
As root type:
  −
  pkg_add -r octave  
  −
If everything goes fine, it'll fetch the package and install it.
     −
Either way it may also be a good idea to install the package called "octave-forge"
+
or via Ports<ref>https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/math/octave-forge</ref>.
