[Matlab] staring error on Ubuntu - not found

MATLAB with Ubuntu 11.04

Under the new Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), when you try and run MATLAB you'll get the following error

/matlab/bin/util/ 605: /lib64/ not found

To resolve this problem, go to a terminal window (Alt + F2 from anywhere) and type

For 64 bit:

sudo ln -s /lib64/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib64/


For 32 bit:

sudo ln -s /lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /lib/

This should restore the missing library that was uninstalled during the Ubuntu update process.

  1. For 12.04, it should be:

    sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib64/
