`This installer was used to install Octave on around 20 different
``laptops,
`some Vista, some XP, some Mac OS X, belonging to students to whom
Matlab/Octave basics are taught.

`Now Octave runs ok, except for some annoying problems, which, I
``think it
`is important to add, DO NOT OCCUR ON ALL COMPUTERS on which Octave was
installed. Some of the problems are :
1/ the text in legends in plots is not displayed ;

`2/ saving the plot to a file doesn't write the axis labels or
``legends ;
`

`Do you use Latex formatting? Then the labels appear correctly on the
``screen but disappear in the saved plot:
`
% LaTeX-labels disappear in saved plot
ff=@(x,y) x.*y;
[X,Y]=meshgrid(linspace(-2,2),linspace(-2,2));
Z=ff(X,Y);
contour(X,Y,Z,42);
xlabel('x_1');
ylabel('x_2');
title('LaTeX formatting: x_1\times x_2');
print -dpng ff.png

`I have Octave 3.0.0 for Mac OS X (10.4.11 PPC) from octave.sf.net
``with gnuplot (bundled with octave) and X11 plotting terminal.
