This is fixed in the upstream version of matGeom, will be fixed for the next release of geometry, and octave forge's matgeom

To check if this is true, you can clone the matgeom package

git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/octave/matgeom octave-matgeom

move to the package folder,

cd octave-matgeom/matGeom

start octave and run

[n, e, f] = createCube;
f2 = minConvexHull(n);
drawMesh(n, f2);

Calling the minConvexHull function of the geometry package throws an error of a missing function vectorNorm3d.

error: 'vectorNorm3d' undefined near line 98 column 20
error: called from
minConvexHull at line 98 column 9

I belive there is no special 3d function here. Changing that line to call vectorNorm (without "3d") seems to solve the problem (both programatically and mathematically)
