So, I am trying to install matlab (R2010b) and I can't get the installer to appear. This is how far I get:
ivana@ivana-desktop:/usr/local/matlabR2010b$ sudo ./install -v -glnx86 Preparing installation files ... -> DVD = /usr/local/matlabR2010b -> ARCH = glnx86 -> DISPLAY = :0 -> TESTONLY = 0 -> JRE_LOC = /tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jre/glnx86/jre -> LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /usr/local/matlabR2010b/bin/glnx86 Command to run: /tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java -Djava.ext.dirs=/tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jre/glnx86/jre/lib/ext:/tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jar:/tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jarext -jar /tmp/mathworks_21291/java/jar/installwizard.jar -root /usr/local/matlabR2010b Installing ... Finished
So everything looks very nice, except that after that nothing happens! No Installer pops up or whatsoever. I thought it might be somehow related to the problem similar to this one, but it doesn't seem so:
ivana@ivana-desktop:/usr/local/matlabR2010b$ ls -l java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java -r-xr-xr-x 1 root root 47308 Jan 27 2010 java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java
Some things I tried and didn't work: running
gksu ./install and installing sun jdk 7.
I haven't seen anyone encountering the similar problem, so I would really appreciate any suggestion that would point out to what might be wrong.
