running a windows installation
copy C:/Program Files/MATLAB into ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/
simple math in command window
displaying history and variables in sidebar
loading image from disk with imread, displaying with imshow
opening editor, saving m-file, running simple m-file
What does not
natively installing in wine from cd
displaying current directory in sidebar
What was not tested
anything not listed under 'working'
Again, the cd installer aborted early, my wine "install" is copied form my windows partition -- this is all that keeps it from gold, in my opinion I needed to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) for this to work. I used version 8.0.50727.762. Java 1.6 was also installed in wine, don't know if this was needed. I also set the serial number for drive_c to the value of the machine id (see your license file) in matlab using winecfg.

If you are trying to run Matlab Simulink in wine1.7, you may find that Matlab will crash with exception(Bug#37381). Since, the bug is notified, it can take sometime to fix it. Till then, u can run Matlab Simulink by overriding msvcr80.dll.
Steps to override: (Assuming you have installed wine1.7.29 or higher, and Matlab)
1. Close Matlab, if opened. Go to winecfg by menu or typing command "winecfg" in terminal. A Dialog box will open.
2. Go to "library" tab. You will see options for "dll overrides".
3. From "New override for library", select msvcr80.dll, and click on "Add". Now, you can see the dll in list. The dll should be mentioned on the list like "msvcr80 (native, built-in)". If all is good then finally click on "OK".
4. You are now good to go. Start Matlab. It should work fine.
I am using Matlab with above mentioned override, Simulink is working fine.
Good Luck. Enjoy!!!
If having doubt about procedure, you can email me : [email protected]. May be we can solve the problem.
When using Matlab with wine1.7, it might be possible that you will end up with /home/
However, I have found a way around to this. Now, you can write a "startup.m" (one line script) and save it to
Inside "startup.m", you need to add a command which is
(Your Startup folder path)'
like I have written
cd 'C:\Matlab programs\'
Have fun !!!
