Hi! I'm getting the following error:

ERROR: object '/usr/lib/' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.

I think it is due to the recent libtiff update. The error goes away by updating the .desktop file as follows:

-Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ matlab -desktop
+Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ matlab -desktop

Thanks! Don't know how you found this solution, but it worked.

@Alad, a quick fix is editing the '' in '.../matlab/bin/' by either editing it in place or copying it to '~/'.

Then, change the line (~170) with LDPATH_PREFIX='' under the case glnx* to: LDPATH_PREFIX='/usr/lib'

This removes the error.

Did anyone notice is not a MEX file errors when compiling files with mex? Tried with gcc and gcc-9

Some minor points:

  • The desktop file contains env twice (env env)
  • The lower half of the PKGBUILD has additional indentation
  • provides can be versioned (provides=$pkgver)
  • msg2 should be avoided, see

Thanks for the PKGBUILD :)

works with R2018(a) with the following change:

add libxss as dependency to allow addon manager to work.

I did not change the default jvm shipped with matlab hence jre7-openjdk wasn't needed. Is the version shipped still considered insecure?

My employer only supports the (a) releases with it's license server so I can not test (b) releases. If someone who updates with each release want's to take over the package let me know.

Because the path is not hard-coded based on version, reinstalling the package should make it work with the (b) releases but I cannot verify this.

@runical, thanks for the heads up (fixed now), glad someone besides me is using the package.

Hey, thanks for the update! Unfortunately, is seems you forgot to run mksourceinfo to update the meta data on the AUR and you didn't update the optinal dependency on GCC from GCC47 to GCC49. (See for the supported compilers) Sorry for nagging :(
