Oh... I found answer myself:

You can force MATLAB to load the newer version of the library provided by the operating system, by following these instructions:

  • Identify the location where MATLAB is installed.
  • Navigate to the sys/os/glnxa64 directory within this installation folder.
  • Rename libstdc++.so.6 library to libstdc++.so.6.old.

  • What do you think about Saleh's proposal? - - How do you compare your answer to his? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 29 '16 at 11:12
  • mine was already like that so I don't know what the solution is in my case $ ls /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016a/sys/os/glnxa64/ libgcc_s.so.1 libgfortran.so.3.0.0 libifport.so.5 libintlc.so.5 libirc.so libquadmath.so.0.0.0 libstdc++.so.6.old README.libstdc++ libgfortran.so.3 libifcore.so.5 libimf.so libiomp5.so libquadmath.so.0 libstdc++.so.6.0.17 libsvml.so – Mona Jalal Sep 22 '16 at 18:01

I had this problem. but after I installed matlab-support the problem solved.

sudo apt-get install matlab-support

I answered my question here.

  • Why do you think this package solve the problem? – Léo Léopold Hertz 준영 Aug 29 '16 at 11:12
  • @Masi surely at least my problem related to sth in this package. It was the only thing I've done do solve my problem and it worked. – SirSaleh Aug 30 '16 at 1:19

    Installing the matlab-support package renames old gcc libraries for you, so it is effectually doing the same thing – Trogdor Aug 31 '16 at 19:10
  • +1 for discovering the reason. Thanks. @Trogdor :) – SirSaleh Aug 31 '16 at 20:44

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04LTS on a Lenovo ThinkStation S20 with GeForce 610 graphics card and installed Matlab R2016a. I renamed the library above but this fix did not work for me. Instead, I switched display drivers from Nvidia to the open source Nouveau. Matlab is working now.

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! I recommend editing this answer to expand it with specific details about how to do this. (See also How do I write a good answer? for general advice about what sorts of answers are considered most valuable on Ask Ubuntu.) – David Foerster May 7 '16 at 7:27

I'm experiencing similar problems. I think the trouble started after upgrading the proprietary Nvidia driver. I'm using an Nvidia GTX 750 Ti with driver version 361.45.18 and the version of MATLAB I'm using is 2016a. ( see https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/926199/linux/361-28-crashes-matlab-r2016a/ )

I tried to completely install and reinstall all nvidia packages, but this did not solve my problem. Then I stumbled on this thread, I tried the proposed fixed by @Yihui He (renaming libstdc++.so.6). After I've done this MATLAB would still crash but a couple seconds later, after the UI was loaded. Now the stack trace of the error was much more clear:

Stack Trace (from fault):
[  0] 0x00007f78d2dea18d               /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1+00344461

I knew there was a cli switch to use software openGL, tried that and MATLAB 2016a dit not crash anymore when starting with:

$ matlab -softwareopengl

I will try to update this post if I find the final solution, but this might help another temporarily.
