I am using Xubuntu 16.04 LTS and installed dynare and octave to run some DSGE models, using “sudo apt-get install octave” and “sudo apt-get install dynare”

Unfortunately I am hitting an error immediately as I try to run the tutorial files here: dynare.org/documentation-and … t/tutorial

When trying to run “example1.mod” I get an error.

Here is my entire octave session, with errors:

I’ve tried a few other examples with similar results.

I googled the error messages and found this post:

- “dynare4.4.3 + octave 4.0.1+ windows10:” Dynare4.4.3 + octave 4.0.1+ windows10

It refers to this issue on github, which appears to *just* have been closed earlier today: github.com/DynareTeam/dynare/issues/1113

Does this appear to be the same problem? If so, do we know when it might be fixed on Linux?

Thanks!
