    Exactly what have you tried? Specifically, what did you do (for example, what command did you run) that produced the error install: command not found? Assuming you're running commands in a terminal, please show us all the text from the terminal starting with the first command you issue. (You can do it again to get this, if the terminal is not still open from your last attempt and you don't have a log.) You can edit your question to provide this information. Thanks! – Eliah Kagan Sep 14 '14 at 19:36
  • maybe you tried install something instead of right command sudo apt-get install something – Leon95 Sep 14 '14 at 21:38
  • I tried sudo /path_of_dir/install &. Also, tried ./install as specified in matlab installation pdf guide. I have extracted the iso file which i received, in dir /home/pravin/Documents/Matlab2012a. Now please tell how to start installation from this dir. Thank u for your guidance. – Pravin Jadhav Sep 16 '14 at 17:47

In general this should work:

cd /path_of_dir_with_matlab_files/
sudo chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install
