Hi Pedro,

I think this mail should go to the help mailing list.

You need to checkout the default repository and compile it from source.
Follow the instructions here

Once you go the code do
$ hg update default
$ ./bootstrap
$ ./configure
$ make
$ ./run-octave

Make sure that ./configure tell that you are OK to compile. Also when
making you can pass the -j<n> option, where <n> is the number of
processors/cores you have in your machine.
I do not know what kind of update system you have in Lubuntu, just run
the equivalent to
$ sudo apt-get install buildessential
$ sudo apt-get builddep octave

before you start compiling to get all the dependencies. You will also need
libqscintilla2 and qt4
