Please copy the text from your Octave session instead of sending
screenshots in the future.

It looks like you think that the addpath() function should allow Octave
to find a file in another directory. That is not correct in general. Try
changing to that directory instead, use either the cd() function or the
GUI file browser.

I never use it so I just learned something. 


addpath adds those folders to the 'function search path'.  This does not add it to the path the same way as the system path. so it won't help octave find datafiles, downloaded packages, etc.
