Siko1056 moved page Android to Octave for Android: Adapt title to current standards.
The Android app [ = GNURoot Octave] in Google play is built and maintained by Corbin Champion and not part of the GNU Octave project.==
The source and some build instructions for the installer can be found here* Android app [* http://octavedetails?id=com.1599824gnuroot.n4octave GNURoot Octave] in the Google play store is built and maintained by Corbin is not part of the GNU Octave-on-Android-td4658392project.htmlThus please use the following GitHub pages for questions and bug reports:
Because the app urges you to donate a fee some users asked on the mailing list if this is a GPL violation* https://github. One example [httpcom/corbinlc/GNURootDebian* Octave for Android Requires Payment]corbinlc/octave4android
There is nothing wrong The implementation has been done in close cooperation with distributing binaries to only those people who pay for them. The GPLv3 requires some form the Octave developers and makes use of the Octave source distribution if you distribute binariescode without essential changes. Thus, but it doesn't require that you distribute binaries free is fully compatible with the versions of chargeOctave on other platforms. If you're offended by Corbin charging money  Some probably outdated build instructions for his work in getting the older "octave4android" app: * == Octave working for Linux on Dex (Samsung Android devices) == [ Linux on Dex (LoD)] is an application (beta testing status) that runs on some Samsung Androiddevices. To build Octave on LoD, do the source above makes it possible for following. This assumes you have LoD working. If not, follow the instructions on the LoD website. # Many of the packages that Octave needs are not in the default Ubuntu installation. You will need to duplicate his work install them using <code>sudo apt install <package></code>. First, you need the compilers gcc, and gfortran. There are other packages that are essential to download: "libblas", "liblapack", "libatlas" and avoid paying him by undertaking their development counterparts with the "-dev" extension.# Remove all "libopenblas" packages with <code>sudo apt remove libopenblas*</code>. The OpenBLAS library from the chore of building default Ubuntu distribution does not work with Octave for Android yourself. Any person with enough skill could take You have to remove it. For details see bug {{bug|56900}}.# Unpack the Octave sources, Corbin's GitHub repositorysource code and enter the directory. Create a build directory <code>mkdir my_build</code>, enter that directory and issue <code>../configure</code>. This will start the configure script. Look at the Android SDK output at the end of the configure process to reproduce his work without see what packages are not found by the script. Many of these will be things you want/need in terms of functionality. You can search for the packages available using the command "apt search", and install the ones you want using <code>sudo apt install <package></code> before compiling. If you want to pay for anythinginstall Octave in "my_build" be sure to issue <code>../configure --prefix=`pwd`</code> from this directory. Here is # In the donation dialog [https:{{Path|my_build}} directory issue <code>make</code> and <code>make install</githubcode>. Now you should have a working installation in,, {{Path|/home/dextop/corbinlcpath_to/octave4androidoctave-5.1.0/blobmy_build/b3bb7f6de607a99840f8b4e6dd40ae12460d2563}}. Graphics: # If you set the graphics toolbox to "gnuplot", Octave should generate plots correctly. If it does not, set the environment variable GNUTERM to x11. The default shell in LoD is bash, and you can either issue <code>export GNUTERM=x11</code> in the bash terminal or in your octavesession issuing "setenv GNUTERM x11". You can also add <code>setenv GNUTERM x11</code> to your {{Path|.octaverc}} file to do this automatically.# If you want to use Qt graphics it will take some work, and may or may not be possible. It has not been tested by anyone. You will need to download the package [https:/src/ libandroid-shmem], get it working, and then recompile Octave linking to this library. There are more detailed instructions regarding the compilation on the github [[Category:Installation]]
