Followed directions from http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=5385&iTestingId=5290 and got same results, most things seem to work fine.
What does not
NOTE: Following the above steps using Java Runtime environment 1.5.0_08 does NOT allow running without the '-nojvm' switch to the call to Matlab (and even then doesn't work as well), so for now, use the 1.5.0_06 version.
Didn't do much testing, just wanted to see if I could get it working at all to this point.
Ran 'demo' and did some of the plots. I guess there is an OpenGL issue, so it seems you have to: >>figure >>set(gcf,'renderer','zbuffer') before plotting some of the more sophisticated plots. That means you won't be able to set alpha transparency in plots...
What was not tested
Lots of things
Additional Notes by Kirk I on Saturday August 26th 2006, 2:26 As the submitter, I forgot to mention that I installed Matlab in windows, then in Linux copied C:\Program Files\MATLAB to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/

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 : firstname.lastname@example.org. 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...
