View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem installing MatLab

January 15th, 2011, 06:42 PM
I am trying to install MatLab 2010b on 10.04, and it is giving me trouble.
ibo@ibo-laptop:/opt/MatLab2010b$ sudo sh /home/ibo/Desktop/MatLab\ R2010b\ \[UNIX\]/install -glnx86
dirname: missing operand
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
Error: Cannot locate Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
The directory /java/jre/glnx86/jre does not exist.
ibo@ibo-laptop:/opt/MatLab2010b$ cd /home/ibo/Desktop/
ibo@ibo-laptop:~/Desktop$ ls -l
total 52
drwxrwxrwx 9 ibo ibo 4096 2011-01-15 11:49 MatLab R2010b [UNIX]
-rw-r--r-- 1 ibo ibo 45979 2011-01-15 12:24 output.pdf

And in Nautilus, I can clearly see that the folder exists. Can someone shine some light here, because I don't know what is problematic. Thanks.
