BTW have a look here:

Does that match your experiences with Octave?

The first plot ever made with a newly installed Octave on Windows can sometimes take forever. However, just be patient, I've found that at some moment the plot is always made fine.

Could you wait -say,- 10 minutes and report back if Octave still hangs?  Just try with a simple "plot ([0 1])"

Running the Octave GUI.  Have tried with GNUplot 32 and 64 bit.  Have tried setting the "graphics_toolkit" to qt, gnuplot, ftlk.

>> available_graphics_toolkits

ans =
  [1,1] = fltk
  [1,2] = gnuplot
  [1,3] = qt


If set to "qt" a window comes up, which is blank, then Octave stops responding.

Tried: plot([1 2 3 4 5])  ... as well as other things.

In all cases it becomes unresponsive and must exit Octave.
