For new users, notice that you have to follow the Wiki for using this pkg. right?

For Matlab 2017a, the optional dependency gcc47 can be updated to gcc49. (The corresponding AUR package also includes gfortran.)

Hi, I have minor problems installing the package with 2017a.
In particular, some of the files referenced in the package() method of the PKGBUILD do not exist.
Some shell output:

The original content of my installer_input.txt:

The content of the installer_input.txt in the src-folder:

I hope you can help me out with this one, looks like a minor issue, but I don't know much about the matlab installation process... thanks. :)

Edit: I finally had some time to look into it myself... solved it quite easily.
I removed the "silent" option of the installer, then it told me that a license file was required. There was no license.dat available in our software repository, but a network.lic ... I renamed the file, enabled "_networkinstall" and yea, awesome.

@progwolff, I have harfbuzz 1.4.8-1 on my system and the GUI works fine

progwolff commented on 2017-08-24 07:49

harfbuzz=1.4.6 is a runtime dependency.
Without it, or with a higher version, the GUI fails to start.

I've just updated this and R2017a is working alright with this package for me now.

Somehow Mathworks' hardware opengl support detection is wonky. I just run `matlab -nosoftwareopengl` to work around that.

Hey all, I've adopted this and I'll try to get it up to snuff on R2017a

@kahlos - Not only these dependencies are required, there are actually more required dependencies in newer releases.
The fact that MATLAB launched successfully on your minimal system doesn't mean that all the vast of MATLAB toolboxes will run successfully.
Some toolboxes, like Image Acquisition, requre gstreamer (not gstreamer 0.10). Some functionality, like SDI or Add-on Manager, require libselinux.
Some features may require ffmpeg. And it goes on. The wiki mentiones some of these caveates - but i just wanted to caution you that the fact that you have bare X running doesn't mean all aspects of MATLAB will work successfully.

@kahlos - thanks for the script. I haven't touched this package in a long time.

daniel_shub is in charge as far as I know, have a look at his matlab-<YYYY[a|b]> packages, e.g. matlab-2015b.
