Common Issues

libXp.so.6 Error when starting MATLAB on a Red Hat / Fedora workstation

When executing 'matlab' on a Red Hat / Fedora workstation you may receive the following error:

'bin/glnxa64/MATLAB: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

The solution is to install the libXp package (this will require root privileges)

$ sudo yum install libXp
