I have Ubuntu 11.10 and try to install MATLAB 2011a. I followed the instructions on the PDF manual accompanying MATLAB as well as the topic at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MATLAB.

The problem is when I run

```
sudo /matlab_install_root/install
```

I get the message

```
sudo: /matlab_install_root/install: command not found
```

Is that an issue of incompatibility?

Cheers,

`sudo /media/MATHWORKS_R2011A/install`

- where have you got`/matlab_install_root/install`

from? – fossfreedom♦ Jan 22 '12 at 13:06
