I am trying to install the statistics package (1.0.10) for Octave (3.2.4), which requires the miscellaneous package. When installing the miscellaneous package (1.0.11) I receive the following error:
couldn't create installation directory /usr/lib/octave/packages/3.2/miscellaneous-1.0.11 : Permission denied error: called from `pkg>copy_files' in file /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m /pkg/pkg.m near line 1473, column 13 error: called from: error: /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 756, column 5 error: /usr/share/octave/3.2.4/m/pkg/pkg.m at line 287, column 7
I am running Ubuntu 11.04.
What is causing this problem and how do I resolve it?
