Octave communications package


Hi guys,
after installing Octave (4.2.1 version), I need to install the communications package. After typing

Code:
pkg install -forge communications -verbose
at the end of the installation, I get the following error:

Code:
In file included from galois-def.cc:21:0:
galois.h:25:28: fatal error: octave/base-lu.h: File o directory non esistente
 #include <octave/base-lu.h>
                            ^
compilation terminated.
make: *** [Makefile:45: galois-def.o] Error 1
make: leaving directory "/tmp/oct-GWNDSI/communications-1.2.1/src"
Any help is welcome, thanks.

Among the many (perhaps I should say many many) bug reports in re Octave, I see several which mention that the base-lu.h header file is missing, although it used to be included.
The only suggestion I can make is to install an older version of Octave which includes the base-lu.h file, and hope the problem of the missing file in recent versions of Octave is fixed some time soon.

Ok bigrigdriver,
I'll install an old version. Thanks.
Please, can you tell me how to uninstall Octave (and packages too) on Arch Linux?

EDIT: I was able to uninstall octave, typing pacman -Rsn octave.
Now, I downloaded from https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/octave/ an old version of Octave (the 4.0.0 one), but if I try to install giving pacman -U octave-4.0.0.tar.gz, I get an error: Missing metadata package in eighth-4.0.0.tar.gz

Why? How can I solve?

UPDATE!
I removed last Octave version (4.2.1), in order to solve the problem of communications package installation, and installed a previous one (octave-4.2.0-1-x86_64).
If I run octave in a terminal, I get the following:

Code:
/usr/lib/octave/4.2.0/exec/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/octave-gui: error while loading shared libraries: libqscintilla2-qt5.so.12: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Why? qscintilla was installed on my machine!
