Installing Octave’s binding for ARPACK in Kubuntu Hardy for Sparse Matrix Calculation

Octave Forge provided an octave binding to Arpack to solve large scale sparse matrix. So first download from octave forge packages.

And to install the package, you need to have the header files for suitesparse and libarpack. So type this in console:
sudo apt-get install libsuitesparse-dev libarpack2-dev
after that go to the download folder of Octave’s arpack and run Octave
octave:\> pkg install arpack-1.0.6.tar.gz

EDIT: thanks Andrew, I previously typed wrongly suitesparse-dev, it should be libsuitesparse-dev.
