Installing the latest version of octave readline libraries missing
I am using Kubuntu feisty and I want to install the latest version of gnu octave, the free alternative to octave. I ran the install as superuser and it failed and said it required runline 4.2 or higher. I have the very old version of octave installed (2.1.73 I think) but I want 2.9.13 as it's as close to matlab I can get without paying for it.
Can anyone tell me how to get the libraries I need?
