Ubuntu – How To Start A Program With Its Name


I've installed Matlab on my Ubuntu 18.04. Every time I want to open it I need to call it.


I think it is too long and waste of a little time. There has to be an easier way to open it. How can I open it simply by writing its name or is there any easier way?

Add this to your ~/.bashrc file

export PATH=/usr/local/MATLAB/R2017a/bin:$PATH
