Package installation MATLAB

hello eveyone, I am here to get help.
I have recently started to use manjaro. I almost installed all the application i need. Now i want to install MATLAB on manjaro if possible. Is there any way i can do this? If so, then how?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

matlab is in the AUR (“Arch User Repository”), but I have been told that said version is outdated. Nevertheless, it should install on your system.

You can try either of the following commands… :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -Syyu yay
yay -S matlab

… or… :arrow_down:

pamac build matlab

Matlab is not that easy to install. You need to take some manual steps.

Read the PKGBUILD. It shows what you need to do. And of course you need a licence and you need to download matlab from your licence provider.

Yes,

The first step is downloading the matlab .tar and your license file

You could also check alternatives to MATLAB, such as GNU Octave or Scilab. I am not sure if they have all the features that MATLAB provides, but depending on what you use it for, these could help.
