problems with matlab windows (both editor and command line windows) when using R2016a on ubuntu 16.04
4 views (last 30 days)
I'm using matlab R2016a on ubuntu 16.04 (64 bits). I'm having problems with the matlab windows (both editor and command line windows). The problem occurs quite reliably every time I use the debugger.
In that case, when I write on the command line or just scroll it up and down, overlapped characters and images appear which make it basically unusable (please see attached png).
There is also a similar problem happening with the editor window: when I use breakpoints, edit the code in the editor window and scroll it up and down, overlapping symbols appear in the "line number" tab (please see attached png; actually I only have one or two breakpoints, all the other symbols are due to the bug).
I use metacity but I also tried other windows manager for ubuntu (compiz, unity) and the problem persists.
Thank you for any help

I also had same problem in Linux (Intel graphics card) with MATLAB R2015b, R2016b, R2017a. Workaround is use other JAVA runtime environement. I recommend install and use JAVA 1.8 from Oracle (not Open JDK):
MATLAB_JAVA=/usr/java/jre1.8.0_101/ /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b/bin/matlab -desktop
