On Ubuntu 13.04 I am getting this error:
/usr/bin/gs: /opt/MATLAB/R2013a/bin/glnxa64/libtiff.so.5: no version information
available (required by /usr/lib/libgs.so.9)
I copied the libtiff.so.5.1.0 from my system folder into the Matlab folder and changed the symolic link (libtiff.so.5) from libtiff.so.5.0.5 to libtiff.so.5.1.0 as a workaround.
it does what it promises, though too bad you can use this only when your cursor is on the editor and command window. I would have liked to assign a key shortcut to close all figures ("close all" command)
