I have installed Matlab 2016a on ubuntu, then the matlab-supporter and matlab-supporter-dev packages via Terminal with defining Matlab directory. However when I launch Matlab I saw an error as shown on image.

The Error Message

Do you know if there is something wrong with Java packages?

    There is a write permission error. Try to chmod -R 777 ~/.matlab. If it throws errors, try with sudo. – dadexix86 May 3 '16 at 11:37
  • Awesome. Thank you very much. It worked but there is an interesting problem. I also need to solve it. !Valid XHTML – Berat Atmaca May 3 '16 at 13:00
  • Good to hear! I post it as an answer then :) – dadexix86 May 3 '16 at 17:22
  • To address your second error message: According to the following link: mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/… , MatLab needs to be started once with administrator privileges in order to properly initialize. The commenter in that link was using the Windows version, but it couldn't hurt to try running MatLab once with sudo to see if it helps. – user533208 May 3 '16 at 17:33
