I dont know anything about the fixed package except that it doesnt appear in the pkg list, and the repo link you mention hasnt been updated since 2016.

I also cant find the release tarball in the quick search I did.

Given that time since last maintenance, chances of the package installing without changes is probably very slim. And changes may even be significant in order to get it to work.

Are these packages listed at packages.octave.org? Then all you need is "pkg install -forge packagename".

Otherwise you need "pkg install packagenamw.tar.gz".

Dear all, I am trying to install the fixed point package under octave-6-4-0/ Linux Ubuntu 22 LTS

downloading the package, unzipping and running "pkg install fixed" yields dependency errors, starting with oct-conf.h, octave/config.h and a few others.
Please is there anybody who has insights how to fix these non-existent dependencies?
Thank you.
