MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

Description:
I am unable to install MATLAB R2020a from an official ISO image which checks out on Fedora 32 (after solving another problem unrelated to this topic).

Output when running "sudo ./install" (working directory is the root of the image):
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  Unable to launch the MATLABWindow application
[1]    24290 abort      sudo ./install

Output when running "sudo bin/glnxa64/MATLABWindow" (working directory is the root of the image):
bin/glnxa64/MATLABWindow: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libpango-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_ptr_array_copy

I have libselinux installed from AUR, and both glib2 and pango are at the newest version as of Sep 10, 2020 (glib2 2.64.5-1, pango 1:1.46.1-1).

Is this a pango problem that needs to be solved by downgrading it or is there some other workaround?

I found this similar issue on https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/54257, but it now seems outdated and didn't exactly match my problem.

My thanks and gratitude in advance.

Re: MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

I had this problem as well. The solution is in the Arch wiki:

I've tried this, I'm afraid... And I'm not even over the installation stage. Most of the solutions I can find deals with g_log_structured, and this is not my problem.

Re: MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

Have you solve the problem? I met the absolutely same problem. I spend about a month on it but failed. And I asked for the support for MathWork. It seems that they don't support systems based on ArchLinux. I tried to install it on Manjaro and failed with the same error.

As you were told during the registration process, Manjaro isn't supported here, ChujunHuang.

Sorry. I mean that I first tried to install it on Manjaro and failed. Then I failed to install it on arch with the same error. Now I use arch linux.I think matlab do not support Arch-based system big_smile

Re: MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

Has someone tried to install it from the AUR?

Re: MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

My god! I succeed! I tried to install R2020b online by downing a zip file. The I unzip the file with unzip command. When I run unzip command, there are something about link. Then I install in online. Last time I tried to install it from an ISO file but failed. big_smile

Re: MATLAB installation fails due to package problems

I got exactly the error OP got. I manged to install it by calling `./R2020a_Update_3_Linux/bin/glnxa64/install_unix_legacy` where `R2020a_Update_3_Linux` is the base-directory.

Note that the normal install script calls `./R2020a_Update_3_Linux/bin/glnxa64/install_unix` which throws that error.

Allow me to apologize for taking so long. This solved my problem. Thank you!
