How to install MATLAB in Ubuntu 14.04? I searched in USC, but it only has some extension for MATLAB.

Best Answer

Matlab isn't included in the Software Center because it's a closed source and proprietary program. However, just downloading the installer for Ubuntu (R2013a specifically) from MathWorks and using all default settings worked fine for me on 64-bit 14.04.

If you downloaded it, you'll have to unzip it first. If you have an installation CD or DVD it should auto-mount when you insert it.

Then just browse to the correct folder in a terminal using cd and execute:


If you want to install it to someplace like /opt you'll have to preface that command with sudo.
