That video demonstrates installing the Linux version of Matlab under Ubuntu. It sounds like you have the Windows version of Matlab, so this leaves you with following options:

  • Get the Windows version of Matlab.
  • Try running your copy of Matlab under Wine.


  • Install linux version of matlab. According to this thread if you have purchased legally you should get matlab for windows,linux and mac without any extra cost.


  • Install windows in virtualbox and use matlab in that.

A quick introduction to Wine is available here.
