I installed the latest version of Matlab on Ubuntu, but I don't see the matlab icon in any folder. Also, I tried to launch matlab from the command line using command 'matlab', but it didn't work. It gave error related to license, although I have a valid license.

So, my question is how to launch matlab on Ubuntu?

There are several ways to create a launcher for matlab in ubuntu, but try this simplest way:

1. Open your terminal (command line)

2. Type sudo apt-get install matlab-support

3. It will open a pop-up Window. Answer 2-3 Yes/No questions and then the launcher will be installed on your machine.
