I have installed Matlab 2012a on ubuntu 12.04, while providing the licence I find the following error:
Could not complete Activation because the License File could not be written to disk. You might not have write permission on the License File or the folder. /usr/local/MATLAB/R2012a/licenses/license_Malhar-PC_161052_R2012a.lic See your System Administrator for assistance. The specific error message text is: /usr/local/MATLAB/R2012a/licenses/license_Malhar-PC_161052_R2012a.lic (No such file or directory).
