Follow-up Comment #2:

Torsten, do you get the error you are seeing if you create the directory
/home/ttl/octave first?

The behavior here is that edit tries to open the file read-write. If that
fails, it tries to copy the file into your "edit home" directory, which is
~/octave by default. The error you are seeing is the same error I see when
that directory doesn't exist. If you set "edit home" to another existing
directory, or mkdir ~/octave first, does it work?

Alternatively, set the "edit editinplace" option to true, then it will open
read-only files without trying to copy them.
