    yeah, so it's probably a stupid question but forgive my ignorance :)
    so I downloaded mathgl-1.11.2.tar.gz file and extracted it. Went into the
    mathgl folder and did the following:
    ./configure --enable-octave
    make
    make install
    and it seemed to have run fine (some warnings about PACKAGE being redined, but
    it went on anyways).
    so assuming I did everything right (a big assumptions for sure), how do I
    actually use it in octave?
    I tried a simple octave plot, but from what I can tell all I got was the
    normal gnuplot (which is sucky)

    Hi!
    First you need to install the mathgl package into octave. To do it just
    execute

    sudo octave
    

    and run in octave

    pkg install /usr/share/mathgl/octave/mathgl.tar.gz
    

    Any samples suitable for Python should work in Octave too (see http://mathgl.
    sourceforge.net/mathgl_en/mathgl_en_89.html).
