Ubuntu: Error while installing MatlabR2011b


Error while installing MatlabR2011b in Ubuntu 12.04 64bit OS

Preparing installation files ...  Installing ...  install: 1: eval: /tmp/mathworks_9756/sys/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/bin/java: Permission denied  Finished  


Here is the solution provided by MathWorks


This error occurs when the installer file (for example, matlab_R2010b_glnxa64_installer.zip or matlab_R2010b_glnx86_installer.zip) is not extracted properly. This commonly happens if the installer is downloaded on a Windows machine, is extracted, and then copied to a Linux machine.

To ensure that the installer runs properly, the installation archives should be extracted on a Linux machine. To extract the installer, you can use the command line tool "unzip" to extract the file. For example:

unzip matlab_R20*_glnxa64_installer.zip  

The Other solution is to change the permission of the java executable located in /java/jre/glnxa64/jre/bin/ directory.

sudo chmod +x java  


In my case, I used this path:


And I used the same command:

sudo chmod +x java
