    matlab-installation using wine

    i tried to install matlab 7 in ubuntu 5.10 using wine.matlab is very heavy software comes in two cds.
    something about installer
    on the cover of installer it is written
    install commands
    1-on unix install
    2-on pcs setup.exe
    i have seen that all the files are in zip format and they contribute the almost entire part of installer.from this i think that this is for both windows and unix.but i can't find any rpm or bin file in installer.
    can i use this installer to install matlab on my pc without wine or other software?

    my wine simulation result is below


    ejaz@msiddique:~$ winecfg
    ejaz@msiddique:~$ sudo wine /cdrom/setup.exe

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    Is there a file called install? Not necessarily with any extension.

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    no there is no file with install but a file with name installer ini

    can i install matlab with wine?
    it opens matlab startup window but then an error message appears that says installer error:
    error finding installer class
    an exception occured while looking up for a class

    i think it is java problem because it is trying to load java classes.should i install java development kit?

    my wine says that it is six month old.can i upgrade this using apt-get so that this error may be minimized?

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    I suspect that you are mistaken in this being a combined windows/unix version of Matlab. I don't believe there is such a thing. There are separate versions for Mac or Unix. But you could contact Mathworks and find out if you have a combination product.

    On the winehq site, someone reported last month being unable to install the Windows version of Matlab using wine.

    EDIT: forgot to mention, there are alternative open-source packages, for example, R statistical package.

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    to which these packages are alternate
    matlab or wine?

    matlab, hence the reference to statistics.

    there is a native linux version of Matlab available, but I believe the student version of it costs more than the Windows version...

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    what upeople think about matlab?
    what are the functinalities of matlab?

    i have checked octave and statistic in apt-get command to see their size.
    u say that these are matlab for linux.don't confuse with my style of writing in post.
    i donot want to hurt linux builders and i appreciate octave and statistic builders that they are making such useful softwares without any costin this world of materialism.i am specifying some functions of matlab so that i may find any alternative to it.plz tell me if octave and statistics provide these facilities.

    matlab isnot just a software to plot graph and solve equations.it is cad for almost all engineers.being an electrical engineer i am listing some functions which normally i'll use or i use
    1-it is a programming language for parallel port intefacing
    2-it supports all j2sdk version of java and swing libraries.i mean a class written in java is directly imported as if it is a program of matlab.i think same would be for other languages also but i am java user
    3-it provides simulink to combine mechanical engineering tools with electrical engineering tools(a computer based home industry)
    4-it provides resources for telecom with such an extent that it is now treated as part of our course. i mean teachers give us lectures and presentations on how to use matlab.
    5-a famous software for elctronics design is orcad capture(by www.cadence.com)is now providing a facility to export its designed circuits into matlab simulink

    are these facilities in octave and statistic also?

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    Matlab is much more than what u04f061 stated and his list is a very impressive array of features.

    I'm an electronics engineer and the defacto standar in my university was (I think it still is) matlab. That fact alone makes almost all engineering students want to run matlab in whatever OS they use. I remember trying octave but it fall very short to the functionallity that matlab provides, not that I'm complaining, I think it's great to have an alternative but I also think that Octave can't compete (at least for now) with some of the features of matlab.

    Anyway, I tried to get matlab 7 working with Wine but it was impossible. It has something to do with matlab using Java for the gui. I remember trying to install with the -nojvm or -nojava (I dont remember the switch) but it wouldn't install. I ended up getting a unix version and it installed well. It has some quirks, but you can search for "install matlab" here in the forums I posted some instructions to get it working in hoary I think.

    Re: matlab-installation using wine

    Thanks for providing details. I suspect that the opensource offerings will not suit you as well as matlab, but for more details look here.

    http://www.gnu.org/software/octave/doc/interpreter/
    http://cran.r-project.org/

    In the end, if you need Matlab, ring up the Mathworks people and ask them for help. If you pay for a product you're entitled to support.
