Unable to install Matlab in sudo mode

I am trying to install 64-bit version of Matlab in my ArchLinux, running KDE.

The installer was able to start when I typed

/media/iso/instal

(install being the install sh script).
However, it wasn't able to create folders due to permission limits.

So, I decided to run it as a root, I type

sudo /media/iso/install

and it gave me bunch of errors and existed to the prompt again.


Here is just part of that error message

Re: Unable to install Matlab in sudo mode

When you're root some env variables aren't propagated, so probably your java env variables are among those.

I'd suggest installing Matlab as user, that's what I do with mine. Just create a folder anywhere (let's say /opt/Matlab) and chmod -R youruser:yourgroup on that folder, and you're good to go.

Re: Unable to install Matlab in sudo mode

Read matlab manual on the cd. Afair, it contains comprehensive instructions on installing matlab.
At least, I did all things by this manual and I can't remember any problems with my installation process.

Thanks that worked, but I just realized I have not enough space on my root partition.

I guess I will just install it in my home folder somewhere.

Re: Unable to install Matlab in sudo mode

Yeah, the exact partition isn't important, just as long as you have enough space and the $MATLAB install folder is owned by your user.
