What do you mean by "don't take anything"?  Do you mean you can't pass an 
argument or do you mean that octave doesn't run when you execute the octave 
script?  Or maybe no output is generated when octave is running?

I'm not familiar with ubuntu to know where octave is installed... if octave 
isn't running, then the path I told you may not be correct.  type 'which 
octave' to determine the correct path and put that at the top of the file 
instead of /usr/bin/octave.

This (or a variant with the correct path) should work as a basic octave script 
that runs at the command line:

disp("Hello world\n");
