Matlab installation issue


Hi guys,
I have encountered a problem during the installation of Matlab (version R2016a). I would to install it on my arch distro in a virtual machine (virtual box), and I created a partition, named matlabdisk (20GB), mounted in /home (/home/MATLAB) dir. I don't know why, but during the installation I get the following error:

The following error was detected while installing vision_common: archive is not a ZIP archive Would you like to retry installing vision_common? If you press No, the installer will exit without completing the installation. More information can be found at /tmp/mathworks_root.log

Googling, I read that the problem could be related to the size of /tmp folder, but I don't know how to increase the size of the /tmp.

Thanks in advance for your help.

seeing as you are paying for the non free MATLAB and that it is VERY expensive , have you contacted them ?

No John, I haven't. I would try to solve the problem before, like at this link:
https://it.mathworks.com/matlabcentr...ation-on-linux

but I don't know how to increase the size of tmp folder. I am a newbie of linux (arch) world.

then make a new Virtual Arch operating system install with a bigger partition

what is the host OS that the VB arch install is on ?

remember MATLAB is non free

you will need to buy the license

or

for most thenge you can use Octave to run *.m files
-- but NO binary mex files are supported

The OS hosting the virtualized OS is Windows 10.
I think I'll opt for Octave installation.
How much is Octave similar to Matlab?

Octave is pretty much a free version of Matlab and can use matlab scripts.

Octave will meet must needs (unless there is some specific Matlab add-on you need). Also Matlab has a Linux build.
