View Full Version : MATLAB R2011b installation error: eval: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

Hi All,

I'm trying to install MATLAB R2011b on a 32-bit Ubuntu 10.4. I've tried different ways, but I keep getting the following error message after I execute the installer:

eval: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

This is right after it says

Preparing installation files ...
Installing ...

I would greatly appreciate any help on this.

It's possible that there's a '(' somewhere along the path to your install script. If so, remove/rename the necessary parts of the name and try again.
