Ubuntu – Matlab Installation “finished”


Hi I am trying to install MATLAB in my Ubuntu 32-bit 13.04 by mounting the ISO. Here are the steps i followed:

sudo mkdir /media/matlab/
sudo mount /home/"username"/Desktop/Matlab_Unix_2012a/ml2012au.iso /media/matlab/ -t iso9660 -o loop 

sudo mkdir /usr/local/matlab/
sudo /media/matlab/install

After all theese commands i get the following message:

Preparing installation files ...
Installing ...

It is supposed to open a window with the "Matlab installation" but it does nothing.
EXTRA: i read somewhere that if i put -v after the install command it would show me more information about it so here it is:

    Preparing installation files ...
->  DVD                 = /media/matlab
->  ARCH                = glnx86
->  DISPLAY             = :0.0
->  TESTONLY            = 0
->  JRE_LOC             = /tmp/mathworks_2980/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre
->  LD_LIBRARY_PATH     = /tmp/mathworks_2980/bin/glnx86

Command to run:
/tmp/mathworks_2980/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java  -splash:"/media/matlab/java/splash.png" -Djava.ext.dirs=/tmp/mathworks_2980/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/lib/ext:/tmp/mathworks_2980/java/jar:/tmp/mathworks_2980/java/jarext:/tmp/mathworks_2980/java/jarext/axis2/:/tmp/mathworks_2980/java/jarext/guice/:/tmp/mathworks_2980/java/jarext/webservices/ com/mathworks/professionalinstaller/Launcher -root "/media/matlab" -tmpdir "/tmp/mathworks_2980" 

Installing ...

Does anyone know why the installation window isn't showing up?

I just found myself in the same situation with the same problem trying to install MATLAB r2014a in a clean ubuntu 14.04, the solution I found it in a post that said that was problem with the java jre

This worked for me:

./install -javadir /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk/jre/

I know you solved with a other iso, but I think someone else can find themselves with the same problem I could be interesting for them.
