MATLAB Simplified Install

A quick sketch of the install (Please engage in the Discussion to improve documentation of these steps):

  1. Download and install MATLAB (to get download rights contact your local IT person or )
  2. Add the following content to the network.lic file in the installation
SERVER 27000

On Mac's this file is located in /Applications/

On Linux systems it is usually located at /usr/local/matlabR2010a/licenses/network.lic (conditional to the install location being /usr/local)

Common Issues 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: 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
