Dear Octave users

For my Math classes I use Octave. Using a very old file (original by Andy Adler)
allows to read data from the X11 screen. I consider this to be very useful.

For many years I compiled the code in by calling
mkoctfile -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -I/usr/X11R6/include/
and it worked like a charm.
Find the code for at

The latest attempt with version 4.0.0 of octave under a Ubuntu 14.04 system failed miserably. I suspect a change the class definitions of Octave, but my lack of C+ skills prevented me from drawing any useful conclusion from the error messages and the Octave manual
did not yield the information I needed.
Does any of you have a hint on how to fix the problem?

With best regards

Andreas Stahel
