Based on your suggestions, I installed Octave 4.4 in my system, I am able to install the dependancies, configure. But while building it with 'make', I get the following errors,

Unknown option 'qt4'.
Makefile:27463: recipe for target 'libgui/src/' failed
make[2]: *** [libgui/src/] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/swayam/Downloads/octave-4.4.1'
Makefile:26387: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/swayam/Downloads/octave-4.4.1'
Makefile:10181: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

Can someone please advise?

Best Regards,

I am trying to install an octave package for scientific computations. I could easily install Octave 4.0, but I am facing great difficulty, with Octave 4.2. After running the 'configure' command, successfully, I am still not able to find a make file to build Octave.

Can someone please help me with this? The issue is a bit urgent. Please find attached the error screenshot.


You got an answer from Andreas Weber. Why you don't follow his advice?

GNU Octave 4.4.1 is the current stable version.

Inside, the Octave 4.2 folder, I just can't do a 'make' after, 'configuration'.

I guess you are trying to build Octave 4.2 from source on a GNU/Linux system which you shouldn't do unless you have good reasons.

Instead use the packages of your used distribution:

or even Flatpak if your distribution doesn't ship Octave >=4.2

Hope that helps, Andy
