Problem installing Matlab, error loading shared libraries

Hey everyone, I’m making the transition to Linux. I’m somewhat familiar with using the terminal, as some classes I’ve taken in college required Linux.
One of the classes I’m taking this year requires Matlab, so I’ve been trying to set it up. I’ve cloned the repository from the AUR, downloaded the zip from Mathworks and extracted it, but when running the install script I get the following error:

/home/(me)/Matlab/matlab/bin/glnxa64/install_unix: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open share object file: No such file or directory

Any help or advice? Matlab is the only thing left for me make the full transition.
Thanks in advance.

Install the libxcrypt-compat package and try again.

sudo pacman -S libxcrypt-compat

That seems to have solved it. Thanks!
