Distributions[edit]

The 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 approach described below or build Octave from source.

Arch Linux[edit]

Main article: Octave for Arch Linux
pacman -S octave

Debian and Debian-based (such as Ubuntu)[edit]

Main article: Octave for Debian systems
apt install octave
apt install liboctave-dev  # development files

Fedora[edit]

Main article: Octave for Red Hat Linux systems
dnf install octave
dnf install octave-devel  # development files

Gentoo[edit]

emerge --ask sci-mathematics/octave

openSUSE and SUSE Linux Enterprise[edit]

Main article: Octave for openSUSE
zypper install octave
zypper install octave-devel  # development files

Red Hat Enterprise/CentOS[edit]

Main article: Octave for Red Hat Linux systems
yum install epel-release
yum install octave
yum install octave-devel  # development files

If the above does not work, follow these instructions to set up your system to install packages from EPEL.

Slackware[edit]

Main article: Octave for Slackware

Distribution independent[edit]

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 communication with the underlying system may exist. For example, executing system binaries outside the sandbox might be impossible.

Anaconda[edit]

 conda create --name octave
 conda activate octave
 conda install -c conda-forge octave

Docker / Podman / Singularity[edit]

docker pull docker.io/gnuoctave/octave:7.1.0
podman pull docker.io/gnuoctave/octave:7.1.0
singularity pull docker://gnuoctave/octave:7.1.0

mtmiller's version[edit]

docker pull docker.io/mtmiller/octave

Flatpak[edit]

flatpak install flathub org.octave.Octave

Guix[edit]

guix install octave

Homebrew on Linux[edit]

"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.

brew install octave

MXE[edit]

Snap[edit]

snap install octave

If you want to use a nightly snapshot build of the development branch of Octave, install from the edge channel

snap install --edge octave

Spack[edit]

spack install octave

Building from source[edit]
