What does not
What was not tested
Workaround for installation: 1) Make a new wine prefix. 2) install winetricks. 3) $ winetricks -q mfc42 dotnet20 vcrun2005 vb6run 4) Run Matlab setup. Now Matlab should be installed.

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 !!!
If having any trouble, please comment...
