@kyak oh cool, thanks. The deps here definitely do need some work!

@greyltc thanks for the effort!

I'd like to point you to the now official Dockerfile from MathWorks themselves: https://github.com/mathworks-ref-arch/matlab-dockerfile/blob/master/Dockerfile and https://hub.docker.com/r/mathworks/matlab-deps/dockerfile.

It can be useful for us to get all the dependencies correctly.

I've just fixed a number of bugs in the PKGBUILD, so as of today with r2019b update 3, I can verify that it's up to date and working. Apologies I don't get around to updating this too often. I don't reinstall MATLAB so frequently to keep up with all the releases. If you'd like to help maintain it, let me know and I can add you as a co-maintainer. The install instructions in the wiki look mostly okay (though I haven't followed them to check that), but hopefully you should just be able to get by with reading my notes in the PKGBUILD its self.

Matlab won't install, what am I doing wrong ?

Error: This folder name is invalid. Folder names can contain alphanumeric characters and '-', '_', '.', or '/' only. The destination folder cannot be named "private".

Update, please?

The wiki is updated to solve the following error:

Using a File Installation Key requires you run the installer from a MATLAB DVD or from a directory which contains files previously downloaded via the installer.

When the installer comes up on this error:

Using a File Installation Key requires you run the installer from a MATLAB DVD or from a directory which contains files previously downloaded via the installer.

makepkg doesn't stop running, but rather continues and will even install an empty binary that doesn't function. I'm well aware of the proper way to acquire the Matlab files to build the package, but is there a way to get the PKGBUILD script to halt on this error?

@jadesoturi The .zip you download from tmw only contains the files needed to run the installer, not all the files required for installation. You need the complete iso. Alternatively, you can run the installer manually, it will download the proper contents of the archives/ folder to a folder in /tmp/. You can then use those files along with the contents of the .zip you previously downloaded to generate the matlab.tar that this package needs to build.

I'm having issues installing this. I got the fik and lic files and the latest zip from Mathworks, but when running makepkg -si it terminates with the following error:

  -> Modifying the installer settings
sed: can't read /home/jadesoturi/temp/matlab/src/matlab/installer_input.txt: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
    Aborting...

Checking the src folder, i see that everything has been extracted to src/ and not src/matlab. Moving everything to src/matlab makes the installer run, but then i get this error:

@hottea, thats great info. I am not, I am just creating a local tarball of matlab, so I can distribute it easily on my 4 archlinux installations. But knowing the file structure for the tarball is a godsent.

On further inspection, matlab now (since 2018b at least from what I have noticed) installs the products to /tmp/tmw<random> while using the network installer. I don't think this was the previous behavior (and it is bad practice to put 8GB on a tmpfs) do notice that the file is deleted upon installation/exiting; so pause once the installer reports 'installing' and cp the directory out of tmp.</random>
