@greyltc OK if you approve my changes.

greyltc commented on 2018-06-20 17:36

@petronny and/or @hottea, would you like me to make you a co-maintainer?

petronny commented on 2018-05-08 21:58

@greyltc I wrote a 2018a PKGBUILD here. It behaves almost as same as your current one, except splitting the keys to a new package.

PS. You can just pull my repository to fetch these changes.

Hi all, I create a repo in Github. If interested, one could use this PKGBUILD for building a package. I remove all dependencies, install all products available by default, and no desktop entry is provided. I gonna add a desktop entry to wiki.

@gunjah post a link here to a pastebin (or similar) of your 2018a PKGBUILD and I'll have a look at getting it in here

@gunjah, you can just copy/paste it here or create your own 2018a specific aur package.

I updated the PKGBUILD for 2018a. How can I upload it?

Hello, I write a PKGBUILD based on this one.


  • default installation folder: /opt/matlab
  • license.dat is installed in /opt/matlab/licenses. I'm sure how matlab activing, but just copying license.dat to /etc/matlab/licenses/, and create a soft link from /opt/matlab/licenses to /etc/matlab/licenses/ not work for me.
  • matlab.tar is created by just copying all file in matlab iso file to folder matlab, and tar cvf matlab.tar matlab

However, I just test with _networkinstall=true, and everything works fine. I'm not sure if other activating method would work.

@daniel_shub Hi, it seems that the package don't install the license.dat when _networkinstall=true. It just create a soft link to /etc/matlab/licenses/, but /etc/matlab/licenses/ is not created, license.dat is not installed either. So after installation, one still need to activate matlab.

As for the ISO file, only license Administrator could download the ISO file. I just download it from school website (our school buy licenses). Or one could always down the ISO in some other way. As long as one has the proper license, I think it's OK to do that.
