Thanks Mike for your response.
Indeed in the conf.log there were quit some warnings(and also for the QScintilla library).
After resolving those I got a build error during make:
"/usr/bin/texi2dvi: etex exited with bad status, quitting"

Nevertheless the ./run-octave was created and was able to use octave as before(probably the previous version I used was an ubuntu package).

Running the make again, also resolved that and I could do the "make install" without a problem. Octave seems to works fine !

Maybe an idea to make the configure more strict (so fail iso only warnings)? A GUI which can't open a file does not seems useful to me...

Thanks for the help !

Thanks for your bug report. I guess that you have compiled Octave yourself from source, and the Qscintilla library was probably not found. Your config.log should contain the prominent warning "WARNING: QScintilla library not found; disabling built-in Qt GUI editor". Can you confirm this is what happened?

From the GUI I can't open a script editor window. No new window is opened. This works in the 4.0.2 release.
