Ubuntu 9.10, Matlab, Mathematica

To install those software packages it is necessary to install first the library ‘libstdc++5’ manually. Since it is not available from Synaptic it is necessary to download it manually.

Additionally, for Matlab, after installing it we have to do

root# cd /usr/loocal/matlab

root# ./install_matlab -glnx


and say yes to all the questions. Then, do (still in /usr/loocal/matlab ):

root# cd bin

root# gedit matlab


and add the following line AFTER the FIRST ONE (#!/bin/sh):

export AWT_TOOLKIT=3DMToolkit

and save the file and exit. Now, you should be able to load Matlab without problems and from anywhere.
