I'm trying to install MATLAB r2012a on Ubuntu 12.04 but I have permission issues. When I run sudo ./install then I get error: command don't exist. If I run ./install without sudo then installation can't create any folders. I use .iso image which I mounted via Furious ISO Mount. How can I install MATLAB.


I tried gksu ./install but nothing happends, if I try sudo /home/alen/ml2012au_iso/install then i get error: command not found.

matlab has a GUI installer so sudo is best avoided try gksu ./install instead. If this does not work add edit this question to include details of any errors encountered. –  Warren Hill Feb 24 '13 at 12:53
