I recently downloaded MATLAB R2015a on my ubuntu 14.04 virtualbox. When I try to run it, I get the blue matlab logo screen and the following error in terminal:
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
MATLAB is selecting SOFTWARE OPENGL rendering
When I try to run it as a superuser, I get a licensing error. I'm pretty new to ubuntu and linux in general--let me know if you can help.
