Installation

  1. Follow the instructions detailed in Downloading and Installing MATLAB. An outline of these installation steps are as follows:
    1. Create an account at the Mathworks site using your campus @uab.edu email address if you do not have one already.
    2. Request an activation key.
    3. Associate to the campus-wide license using your activation key.
    4. Download the software from mathworks download site and install.
  2. Activate the software: Add the following content to the network.lic file in the installation
SERVER lmgr.uabgrid.uab.edu 27000
USE_SERVER

On Mac's this file is located in /Applications/MATLAB_R2010a.app/licenses/network.lic

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

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
