I am new to Ubuntu and confused about whether to use Matlab windows version (which I had a copy) using WINE or to install the Linux version.
If it is good to install Linux version of Matlab I would like a detailed set of instructions to install it.

If you have already a copy of MATLAB, then you could follow these steps to install on your Ubuntu machine (assuming you have a downloaded copy).
First make a mount point, which is just a folder. For example:
Then mount the downloaded ISO to that directory. For this example,
the ISO is in the home folder under the downloads folder and the ISO
matlab.iso(if you have downloaded on to the same system):
mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/downloads/matlab.iso /media/mathworks
Now you can navigate there and run the installer as if it were a copy of the DVD, for example:
cd /media/mathworks ./install
