    [Howto] make Simulink 6 run (Matlab Version (R14))

    Hello all,

    I didn't find help in these forums, but on a french site. Now I am very proud that I really did understand the french howto.

    Original Thread in french

    Since I allready asked in another thread, I want to give you a translation in case anybody else has the same problem.

    Problem: when I try to start simulink, matlab crashes with an error that is missing. The error is in the first lines of text matlab writes down when it crashes. I didnt record the error message, it is something like:

    Can't load '/usr/local/My_install/matlab/bin/glnx86/': /usr/lib/ no such file
    the following steps assume that matlab is installed in

    To solve this, follow this:
    sudo apt-get install libXft2
    this should install you the files.

    now link the older to the newer files

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
    Now a different error should appear when trying to start simulink:

    ??? Can't load '/usr/local/My_install/matlab/bin/glnx86/': /usr/local/My_install/matlab/bin/glnx86/ undefined symbol: XftFreeTypeOpen
    backup your old qt-mt lib

    sudo mv /usr/local/matlab7/bin/glnx86/ /usr/local/matlab7/bin/glnx86/
    now again another error appears when trying to start simulink.

    fix it with

    sudo mv /usr/local/matlab7/sys/os/glnx86/ /usr/local/matlab7/sys/os/glnx86/
    now it works.

    hope I could help!
