I am trying to install MATLAB and I am running into some issues with the installer program with Ubuntu 13.10.
I get to the screen which tells me to select the directory I wish to install in, I then select next and it tells me the folder does not exist and asks me if I wish to create a new one; if I select to create the folder it gives me the error:
Failed to create folder (/usr/local/MATLAB/R2013b/)
I then tried to create the folder manually; using
sudo mkdir /usr/local/MATLAB/ and then
sudo mkdir /usr/local/MATLAB/R2013b/, but the installation continues to fail with the same error.
Has anyone encountered and overcome this error before?
Thanks in advance!
