Matlab is a commercial product with EXCELLENT customer support, so I am curious why you took the time to join LinuxQuestions.org instead of simply contacting them?

To specifically answer your question, I do not see any error messages in your post that would allow us to find "the problem" for you. If you are new to Linux then why are you improvising instead of strictly following the instructions? (i.e. why don't you put the DVD in the DVD drive as instructed?)

if you MUST use "matlab " you will want to use a Microsoft Windows Operating system
install Matlab on Windows 7

seeing as matlab is very expensive you will want to use the OS it was designed for
now if all you need is to be able to use 99.999% of all "*.m" "matlab files"
then there is a FREE GPL'ed almost clone called " Octave"

it will be in the ubuntu repos

Code:
apt-get update 
apt-get install octave

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.
Yes, there is a Matlab version for linux.

Hopefully you have the necessary license keys etc.

Are you trying to install a linux version? Does the installer have executable permissions? What happens when you do not use the &

I join LinuxQuestions.org to learn moore about linux
For the DVD, I dont have one because i downloaded from the internet (with crack)
the problem for me isnt only for Matlab, but i have the same problem with other softwares such as ANSYS & Abaqus and i need these specefic softwares
i dont know what to do because every time the problem is not the same
first the problem was

sudo: /home/abdou/Desktop/R2013b/install: command not found
then i found that the option install allow executing file as program is uncheck, I check that option

now it shown this message whene i dont use sudo

bash: /home/abdou/Desktop/R2013b/install: /bin/csh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
and when i use sudo nothing happen

we can not help you with that
it is a violation of the forum rules
and the forum moderator will likely close this thread , for that reason

BUY the install dvd and the license
or use octave

Have your Univ. expect a visit from the BSA ( Business Software Alliance)
that is an illegal practice in almost every country in the world .

when you say cracked versions do you mean its pirated (seems very irresponsible for a college to provide) ?

or do you mean student evaluation versions with appropriate license keys (when i was in college we used the student versions of things like matlab/system view/lab view). it was a pain in the ass to have to call elanix every 3 months to get a key to extend our evaluation.

just so you are aware, eventhough those software mite provide a linux version they are not open-source. so downloading them without permission is against copyright. there may be open-source alternatives to those specific programs.

So your idea is that you will steal this educational software, ignore the EXCELLENT support they offer to their paying customers, and then we here on LinuxQuestions will hold your hand and teach you how to use it for free, becoming an accessory to your theft? Unbelievable.

Try scilab. It's very similar to Matlab, and it's free, so you can install it legally and more easily.
Code:
sudo apt-get install scilab

Per the LQ Rules, posts containing information about cracking, piracy, warez, fraud or any topic that could be damaging to either LinuxQuestions.org or any third party will be immediately removed. Since nobody here did (nor will) provide help about installing a pirated version of the software in question, the thread is now closed, leaving valid advice about alternative free software.
