$ sudo mkdir /media/[YOUR-USERNAME]/Matlab_R2016b
$ sudo mount -t auto -o loop R2016b_glnxa64_dvd1.iso /media/[YOUR-USERNAME]/Matlab_R2016b

Step 2: Start to install

sudo /media//Matlab_R2016b/install

After a while, the GUI of MathWorks Installer appeared.

Step 3: Continue to install

  • While the GUIT is presented, select Use a File Installation key and press next;

$ mkdir /media/[YOUR-USERNAME]/Matlab_R2016b
$ sudo umount /media/[YOUR-USERNAME]/Matlab_R2016b
$ sudo mount -t auto -o loop *dvd2.iso /media/Matlab_R2016b

Step 5: Complete the installation

Once finished the installing in the GUI, then umount the dvd2 from /media/Matlab_R2016b.

$ sudo umount /media/[YOUR-USERNAME]/Matlab_R2016b

$ sudo cp -a Crack/license_standalone.lic /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b/bin/licenses
$ sudo cp -a Crack/R2016b/bin/glnxa64 /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b/bin/glnxa64
$ sudo chmod 777 /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b/bin/licenses/license_standalone.lic
$ sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/local/MATLAB/R2016b
