I recently installed Matlab R2013a and it is working fine, however the only way I can start it is by running `/usr/local/MATLAB/R2013a/bin/matlab`

in the terminal. If I type in `matlab`

it says command not found, and I can't seem to get an icon in the side-bar launcher. How can I make it so I can run from the command matlab or from a launcher?

Edit: I have created a link so I can launch it by typing `matlab`

in the terminal. I still can't get the unity icon launcher working though. I managed to create an icon via a `matlab.desktop`

file in `/usr/share/applications`

. When I click it, it launches Matlab, but after the initial loading screen Matlab shuts down instead of launching the application. It works through the terminal though. My `matlab.desktop`

file is:

```
