Note that native versions of Matlab 7.0.4 are sold for Linux, Solaris and Mac OS X. I haven't used this version yet on any platform.

Most of the basic functionality: Editing and debuging, Plotting, The demos
I have a dule boot system with matlab installed on windows. I thought copying the whole thing would be quick wasteful. So instead I created an empty matlab directory under wine
>mkdir ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/MATLAB704
and then I created symbolic linkswith the all the directories in /windows/C/Program Files/MATLAB704/
To Matab to work with all the editing abilites you a need the java virtual machine running under wine. The default one that comes with matlb does not work. So to fix that I deleted the .../MATLAB704/sys/ folder and follwed instructions in
What does not
The graphics are a bit iffy... specially 3D. If you run "peaks" nothing shows up. If you run "logo" it shows up Okay.
You need to figure->set(gcf,'renderer','zbuffer') for the graphics to show up as reported in
If you have a lot to windows arround. Sometimes the images get corruppted. This happens you do lots of resises or moves.
What was not tested
and tonnes of other stuff...
You will probably see some error messages. ): semi-stub
All these errors seem to have little consequence on the Matlab's operation.
