I have downloaded MATLAB R2012a for Unix platform and i want to install it on my ubuntu 11.10. To install i try this command:
and it says:
install: missing file operand
According to it's manual i must give it an input file, So i create an input file like this to install in 'Stand Alone' mode:
Acctually i'm not sure in "activationPropertiesFile" field what file is required, so i supposed it requires license file. I saved this file as txt format in the same directory which installation files are.
Then i tried this command:
install -inputFile my_input_file.txt
and it gets this error:
install: invalid option -- 'i'
I know there is some helps in other websites and also some questions here about this topic, but i can't figure out what's the problem, Please help me, i'm a real noob on linux .
Thank you guys
in properties of the install file i checked the item "Allow executing file as Program", now it's like this:
after that i can run install file by clicking on it or by typing ./install in terminal. but in both ways i get this:
Preparing installation files ... Installing ... eval: 1: /tmp/mathworks_xxxx/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java: Permission denied Finished
in third line xxxx is a random number every time like 6370 or 5310 ... . why i have not permission? what should i do?
using Mahesh help i tried these commands:
sudo chmod +x ./install sudo ./install -v
the result is:
Preparing installation files ... -> DVD = /home/mehdi/qBT_dir/Matlab_Unix_2012a/ml2012au -> ARCH = glnx86 -> DISPLAY = :0.0 -> TESTONLY = 0 -> JRE_LOC = /tmp/mathworks_6114/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre -> LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /tmp/mathworks_6114/bin/glnx86 Command to run: /tmp/mathworks_6114/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java -splash:"/home/mehdi/qBT_dir/Matlab_Unix_2012a/ml2012au/java/splash.png" -Djava.ext.dirs=/tmp/mathworks_6114/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/lib/ext:/tmp/mathworks_6114/java/jar:/tmp/mathworks_6114/java/jarext:/tmp/mathworks_6114/java/jarext/axis2/:/tmp/mathworks_6114/java/jarext/guice/:/tmp/mathworks_6114/java/jarext/webservices/ com/mathworks/professionalinstaller/Launcher -root "/home/mehdi/qBT_dir/Matlab_Unix_2012a/ml2012au" -tmpdir "/tmp/mathworks_6114" Installing ... eval: 1: /tmp/mathworks_6114/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java: Permission denied Finished
Last thing to do is go into /matlab-install-files/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java and :
sudo chmod +x ./java
and then go back to installation files directory and run install by:
and it will work :-)
Thank you all specially "Mahesh" and "John"
