I just purchased the student version of Matlab and installed & activated following the instructions from Matlab. However, I cannot run it either with sudo or without.
With sudo, there is the license error saying the user name is different, I figure out that it becomes 'root' so is different from the username of the license. Without sudo, I got stuck at the splashscreen and can never go to the Matlab window. I have to enter ctrl-Z to stop it running from the terminal.
I tried to install in both the home directory and the default /usr/local directory trying to avoid the issue with administrative privilege, but the result is the same (stuck at the splashscreen). I also tried the matlab-support package, still no luck.
Thanks in advance for replying.
