The version is GNU Octave, version 4.0.0 and the operating system is Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

It looks to me it is a file write permission problem.

Make sure you have write permission to the working directory, and if this directory has
the plot15_7.tex file already you have write permission to it as well.


I want to thank Dmitri and Pantxo for their suggestions. I do have write permission for the directory and the 'toto' script did work on the original machine.

I tried running the manual example and the 'toto' simplified version in a computer with Ubuntu 18.04 and Octave 4.4 (or 4.2, perhaps) and both scripts worked fine.

I then ran them in yet another machine with Ubuntu 16.04 and Octave 4.0 and that worked fine but there it was pdflatex that yielded an error...

I will just upgrade all machines to the latest version of Octave and pdflatex.
