Good, you are a Matlab user like me, but.. why are you willing to install it on a headless linux workstation ? I thought i was the only person in the world doing that but you reading this proves i am not alone…
1) Well you mounted the iso image:
mount -o loop Matlab801_MacUnix.iso /mnt/cd
2) And tried to install but…. you are getting this
java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':20.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable. at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment.initDisplay(Native Method) at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment.access$100(Unknown Source) at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment$1.run(Unknown Source) at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method) at sun.awt.X11GraphicsEnvironment.(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method) at java.lang.Class.forName(Unknown Source)
3) OPS! this should not be difficult you think…
#Try this... install_linux -mode silent #And this... install_linux -javahome /opt/java -mode silent #And your DISPLAY variable is logically correct! because ... printenv | grep DISPLAY DISPLAY=:20.0
The error message keeps displaying:
Error: The application encountered an unexpected error and needs to close. You may want to try re-installing your product(s). More information can be found at /tmp/mathworks_root.log
And you are able to run any other X application, starting from xclock… but the Matlab install do not wants to start.
Do not worry, it is not all lost.
First, you will have to modify the install_linux shell script, but the image is readonly, so you will have to do a trick:
4) First create a directory
mkdir /mnt/tmpcd cd /mnt/tmpcd
5) Copy there the install_linux script
cp /mnt/cd install_linux /mnt/tmpcd
6) Modify this line:
java_cmd="$java_exe -Xmx512m $XTRAFLAGS -Djava.ext.dirs=$JAR_SEARCH_PATH $JAVA_LAUNCH_TARGET -root \"$ROOT\" -tmpdir \"$TEMP_DIR\" -inputFile '$ROOT/install_ini_linux.txt' $arglist" # #And add this: "-Djava.awt.headless=true" It should look like this: # java_cmd="$java_exe -Xmx512m $XTRAFLAGS -Djava.awt.headless=true -Djava.ext.dirs=$JAR_SEARCH_PATH $JAVA_LAUNCH_TARGET -root \"$ROOT\" -tmpdir \"$TEMP_DIR\" -inputFile '$ROOT/install_ini_linux.txt' $arglist"
7) Now create a link to all the other files, i did it like this
# Being in /mnt/tmpcd for i in /mnt/cd/*; do ln -s $i; done
8) Now you are ready! install it.
