Binary packages for Octave and many Octave-Forge packages are provided by all versions of Debian and Ubuntu. These are the most well-tested binaries available and should work best for most users.

Binary packages for GNU Octave and many [[Octave Forge]] packages are provided by all versions of Debian and Ubuntu. These are the most well-tested binaries available and should work best for most users. To install them, run:
    
  sudo apt-get install octave
 
  sudo apt-get install octave

Aside the {{codeline|octave}} package that installs GNU Octave, other pieces of it are split over multiple packages. These are {{codeline|octave-doc}}, {{codeline|octave-info}}, and {{codeline|octave-htmldoc}} for the documentation; {{codeline|liboctave-dev}} for the octave development header files and mkoctfile (required to install Octave Forge packages); and {{codeline|octave-dbg}} for the debugging symbols.

In Debian and Ubuntu the "complete" GNU Octave software is split over multiple packages. To obtain the complete features of Octave, install additionally

For Debian stable users, there may also be newer packages available in backports, so don't forget to check there.

Many Octave packages are also distributed by your Linux distribution.  These are tested to work the best with your Octave version.  For example:
      
  sudo apt-get install octave-control octave-image octave-io octave-optim octave-signal octave-statistics
 
  sudo apt-get install octave-control octave-image octave-io octave-optim octave-signal octave-statistics

=== Octave's Personal Package Archive (PPA) for Ubuntu ===
+
Up to 2018, the [https://launchpad.net/~octave GNU Octave Team] on Launchpad actively maintained a PPA providing more up to date packages of Octave. These are backported from Debian unstable and are still useful for older Ubuntu installations. To set up your system to install these packages, run:

For some Ubuntu releases the Octave packages are too old (Ubuntu 12.04 only has Octave version 3.2).  The [https://launchpad.net/~octave GNU Octave Team] on Launchpad maintains a PPA providing more up to date packages of Octave for all versions of Ubuntu. These are backported from Debian unstable (the Ubuntu Octave Team needs help testing and preparing the packages so if you can help with this, contact [[User:Mtmiller|Mike Miller]]). To set up your system to install these packages:
      
  sudo apt-add-repository ppa:octave/stable

=== Configuration ===
 
=== Configuration ===
   −
As mentioned above, Octave can be compiled with the default settings using {{Codeline|./configure && make && make install}}. You can also tweak the setup using configure options. Some examples are given below for a Linux system.

Some Debian and Ubuntu specific configure tweaks are listed below:
 
  −
==== 64 bit ====
  −
 
  −
To get [https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/Compiling-Octave-with-64_002dbit-Indexing.html 64-bit] indexing requires all linked libraries to support 64-bit variables. You can omit most of these except BLAS which gives a fatal error. This is remedied by compiling [http://www.openblas.net/ OpenBLAS] with edits to its Makefile.rule so that BINARY=64 INTERFACE64=1.

The problem is that there are multiple versions of the hdf5 package.  Octave was written with the serial version in mind but it is likely to work with the others (OpenMPI and Mpich). Due to the naming scheme done in Debian, it may be required to specify the location of the libraries.  See bug {{bug|38928}} for details (starting with comment #19) but basically, use the following when running configure:

On older versions of Debian and Ubuntu, where only one flavor of the HDF5 library could be installed at a time, you may need to build Octave against one of the MPI-enabled flavors. On these older systems, configuring Octave like this may work:

 +
==== Sundials ====
 +
 +
On recent Debian and Ubuntu releases whose Sundials version (in {{codeline|libsundials-dev}}) is 3.1, a configure flag needs to be passed for {{codeline|ode15i}} and {{codeline|ode15s}} to be compiled with support for sparse Jacobians (bug {{bug|55937}}), as follows:

./configure CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/suitesparse"
