Ubuntu 16.04

After installing matlab (I tested with 2016a), do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install matlab-support

Matlab then worked, but only with sudo. As a normal user, matlab would open the splash screen then spit out errors containing java.lang.exception

I had to change permissions in ~/.matlab

chown -R $USER:$USER ~/.matlab

For matlab 2015a the following worked:

Identify the location where MATLAB is installed.

Navigate to the sys/os/glnxa64 directory within this installation folder.

Rename library to - This will force matlab to load the newer version from OS.
