somehow I can’t launch ./install with root.

I mounted matlab2013 with Furius. If I execute ./install, when installer fails to install in /usr/local/matlab folder.

I tried sudo ,gksudo, gksu and dkesudo , but those commands don't start installation...

What is the exact error when you run ./install? Also, what do you mean "those commands don't start installation"? What is the exact error when you try to run it with sudo? –  Alaa Ali Sep 8 '13 at 15:58
