It may be that you downloaded the wrong Sysquake, that is the one
sees when getting on page

and indeed Sysquake-41-LE.dmg is the one I wasted a couple of hours on.

The one at the bottom of that same page

sysquakelx-mac-1.0a.pkg.zip

worked for me out of the box—except I couldn't find the options. I
don't think I had anything to do. All I can see in my latex folder is
an alias for sysquake.sty

For instance, I just have to compile the following TWICE:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[latexingraphics]{sysquake}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{epstopdf}

\begin{document}

In Sysquake, $e^{j \cdot \pi} = \sqexpr{exp(1j * pi)}$.

Here is a plot of
\begin{displaymath}
f(x) = \frac{x^{2}}{x^{2}-1}
\end{displaymath}

\hspace{-22mm}
\begin{sysquake}(400,300)%dimensions of graphics
plotoption nomargin;
plotoption noframe;
fplot(@(x) x^2/(x^2-1), [-10,10], 'r');
\end{sysquake}
\end{document}

Hope it works
