A nice icon to use as Matlab start button in Linux.

File Information
Description

There comes a Matlab logo in different sizes with Matlab. It can be found in the "${MATLABROOT}/X11/icons/" directory. However, I didn't like those much, therefore I created a new one.
The image was created by using the "logo" command in Matlab and saving the image. I used Gimp to crop the image, resize it and to set the transparent areas.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.14 (R2012a)

Looks good, but would be nice to have in 256x256.

Thank you very much. This one is way better than the shipped ones.

Excelent, i can't believe matlab is still shipped with the ancient icons, found in the X11 folder.

About time someone did it. Last install, I had to make one myself... now you've saved me the trouble :)

Thanks!

Edges are now transparent.

The edges still don't appear to be transparent. If you have export_fig (here on the FEX) then the following gives a good result:
logo; set(gcf, 'color', 'none', 'position', [101 100 127 128]); export_fig matlabicon.png -nocrop

The edge of the 3D-plot should have been made transparent so that the icon show nicely against dark background.

Updates
19 Oct 2009

Following a suggestion by Ilkka Pohjalainen, the edges are made transparent as well.

Improved transparency using export_fig.
