When the cable is out of the housing, grease works well, and lasts a long time.
I wouldn't use chain lube for fear it would get gummy.
If you use motor oil, don't use detergent oil. It gets gummy.
WD 40 works great, but only for a few days. Then you have to apply it again.
I didn't like graphite cable lube. It seemed gummy right from the start.
