Octave 3.6 (Precise)

PPA description

Backport of Octave 3.6 from Debian Sid to Ubuntu Precise

LEGACY PPA: Please note that this PPA doesn't receive updates any more and thus these packages are OUTDATED. Please consider updating to a newer Ubuntu release.

This PPA provides a backport of the latest Octave package from Debian, along with a matching build of the pure-octave package. The latter can be used as a drop-in replacement for the corresponding package in https://launchpad.net/~dr-graef/+archive/pure-lang.precise.

The reason for this backport is that the Octave 3.2 package in Precise is pretty old and segfaults when embedding the Octave interpreter along with VTK in the same program. Octave versions 3.4 and later don't have this defect.

To add this PPA to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dr-graef/octave-3.6.precise

Note that installing the pure-octave package pulls in some dependencies from the Pure PPA, so you'll also need to add this PPA to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dr-graef/pure.precise
