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;

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 with gnuplot (bundled with octave) and X11 plotting terminal.
