I just installed a clean copy of ubuntu 12.04 on my pc. When I run the install script on my matlab student R2012a dvd with the command "sudo ./install -v" I get the output below.
vancan1ty@probook:/media/MATHWORKS_R2012A$ sudo ./install -v [sudo] password for vancan1ty: Could not find JRE for glnxa64. Trying glnx86. Preparing installation files ... -> DVD = /media/MATHWORKS_R2012A -> ARCH = glnx86 -> DISPLAY = :0.0 -> TESTONLY = 0 -> JRE_LOC = /tmp/mathworks_3402/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre -> LD_LIBRARY_PATH = /tmp/mathworks_3402/bin/glnx86

Installing ... ./install: 1: eval: /tmp/mathworks_3402/sys/java/jre/glnx86/jre/bin/java: not found
The matlab splash screen never comes up. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could try next? Any help would be appreciated.
It looks like you are trying to install your version of MATLAB on a 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Since the student version of MATLAB only supports 32-bit Linux, installation is not going to be trivial. I would contact TMW for help.
