For posting to this list, please copy-n-paste the text from your terminal session (i.e.  not a bitmap). The text will be arcieved and can be searched by others at a later time … the bitmaps will not be included.

It looks like you are running Ubuntu. I suspect the version of Octave available for your version of Ubuntu is not 4.x. Hence, "sudo apt-get build-dep octave” will not install dependencies that are new to version 4.x.

The error indicates that you do not have rsvg-convert. To install rsvg-convert, type the command below at your terminal’s prompt.

sudo apt-get install librsvg2-bin
