How to install Matlab from iso files in Ubuntu Linux

If you try mount the iso files, maybe you can't change the permissions to execute (read-only files).
Try to extract both isos with:

7z x namefileDVD1.iso
7z x namefileDVD2.iso

To run matlab installer you must change the permissions from two files:

chmod +x install
chmod +x bin/glnxa64/install_unix

If you execute "sudo ./install" probably you will get this message:

Preparing installation files ...
Installing ...

That means that you may have problem with your jre environment.
Give the JRE path to the executable to run it:

sudo ./install -javadir "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre" 

If you don't know where is your JRE path, just find jre folders with:

locate jre

Enjoy it!
