Thank you both for your assistance. Octave 4.0 successfully installed with GUI on this try.
For future Octave users like that may want to install Octave 4.0 under Ubuntu 14, here is a
summary of what worked for me:
o Download Octave 4.0 and extract it into a directory of your choice.
o Remove any installed versions of Octave on your Ubuntu system
o Open a terminal and execute
sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev libqscintilla2-dev (thanks to Tatsuro)
sudo apt-get install libportaudio-dev libqt4-opengl-dev (thanks to Chechu)
o CD into your Octave directory and execute
Verify that you don't receive a "Qt libraries not found -- disabling GUI" message.
This takes about two hours on my old PC
sudo make install
This only takes a few minutes.
(I'm not sure that libportaudio-dev is the correct library Octave needs in the third step, but having it seems to do no harm.)
Is there a better place than the maintainer's list to post this summary? If so, it might save the next fellow a lot of time :-)
