I am using Linux-mint 18. I want to call external software from MATLAB. Here is what I have done so far but it is not working.
Let's say the name of my software is "my_software". It is located in "/home/hs/my_software" folder. If I want to open it using the terminal, I do "/home/hs/my_software/bin/my_software" and I can open using terminal. I have also created alias for it in .bashrc file. So if I just type in terminal "my_software", it opens the software.
However when I do in MATLAB "system('my_software')" it gives me the error "/bin/bash: my_software:command not found". If I do "system('/home/hs/my_software/bin/my_software')" then it works i.e. it open the software successfully using MATLAB.
May I ask that what I have to do so that my alias also works in MATLAB like in terminal i.e. if I do "system('my_software')" it successfully opens?
