*  Informatique / Matlab / CentOS 7 : installation of Matlab R2015a to R2016b without GUI

pict pict

We need a valid license for the version we want to install and

We choose to present the installation of the release 2016b. For the other releases, the same principle can be applied. For a console/text mode installation of the release 2016b

  1. Create the configuration file Matlab_client.cnf adapted to your license. For me its contents is :

    destinationFolder=/usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b fileInstallationKey=<write your installation key here> agreeToLicense=yes mode=silent licensePath=<write path here>/license.dat lmgrFiles=false lmgrService=false # After add your license products product.MATLAB product.MATLAB_Compiler_SDK product.MATLAB_Compiler product.Parallel_Computing_Toolbox

    A list of some Matlab products/Toolboxes is given product.list .
  2. to mount the iso file R2016b_glnxa64_dvd1.iso replace in the following command the <path> by the path of the iso file.

    sudo mkdir -p /mnt/iso 
    sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 <path>/R2016b_glnxa64_dvd1.iso /mnt/iso

  3. The next command lauch Matlab install by using previously created Matlab_client.cnf file.

    sudo /mnt/iso/install -mode silent -inputFile /<full path>/Matlab_client.cnf

  4. unmount the iso file

    sudo umount /mnt/iso

    For other releases of Matlab, we just have to change the destinationFolder in file Matlab_client.cnf and use the corresponding iso file.
