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.

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@example.com. 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 !!!
