Terminal give me no messages and i don't know what to do but i need matlab on my pc. It seems like the file named install doesn't work, how can i solve?

To my understanding, you are not able to launch MATLAB R2021b in your linux terminal. The most likely reason is that you do not have permissions to one or more of the files in the installation folder. A similar question has been answered previously the link to which has been attached below. It might help you resolve your issue.

I'm also having this issue on ubuntu linux 18.04 with R2021b. This seems like quite a critical failure for Linux users. Are there any plans to fix this bug in the installer?
