With the Octave version 4.0.0 these two packages worked.

Do you have an idea what do?



This problem is unfortunately known since the Octave 4.4.0 release [1].  The last release of the package 2.2.2 was 2015-04-05, there seems to be no maintainer at the moment.  Since the last release only a few updates happened in the development repository [2], which at least seem to fix the installation issues, only a few deprecation warnings persist.

To overcome the lack of a release, I am afraid, you have to put a little hands on:

1. Install the "generate_html" package: >> pkg install -forge generate_html
2. Clone the latest version: >> hg clone octave-linear-algebra
3. Run inside the directory: >> make release

The last step should already install the package in your default location (pkg load linear-algebra).  Otherwise you'll find the *.tar.gz file in the "target" directory.
