QtOctave: a front-end to GNU Octave with easyplot

After testing some front end tools to octave (Xoctave, octaveNB on netbeans) I found QtOctave wich seems nice. It provides a script editor with syntax coloring and press F5 to run on a console (that you can put side by side with the editor). Seems better than works on console. You can install it using apt-get tools:

sudo apt-get install qtoctave

After install it, you should set the octave path on Config/General Configurations/Octave path. If you want you can install easyplot, a tool that provide some basic customizations after plotting a figure: such as set title, labels, fonts. To install easyplot requires installing some qt packages and compiling from source:

sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake qt3-dev-tools 
wget http://forja.rediris.es/frs/download.php/511/easy_plot-1.1.tar.gz
tar -xzf easy_plot-1.1.tar.gz
cd easy_plot
cmake .
make
make install 
# it was necessary include cstdio library on file gnuplot_connection.cpp 
sed '1 i #include ' src/gnuplot_connection.spp
