Solution for Compiz + Matlab

  • * You only need to edit the matlab bin file by paste just after the "#!/bin/sh" command:
export MATLAB_JAVA=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/
  • You will find the matlab bin file on:
/path to matlab/bin/matlab
  • Now edit matlab bin file:
$ gedit /path to matlab/bin/matlab
  • The result after editing the file would be something like this:
#!/bin/sh
export MATLAB_JAVA=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/
#
# Name:
# matlab script file for invoking MATLAB
#
bla bla bla

  • Save and run Matlab ;)

Thanks. The trick works with 64-bit 2006b too. I had to modify the exported path.

I tried another thing that worked so fine.........
In any command window, type:
"export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit"
Then start MATLAB from the same window.
I works fine
Also you can add it to your .bashrc
Enjoy.........
