I'm running matlab R2016a on Fedora 24 and I can't use the plot command.
This is the error I get:
Error using gca
While setting the 'Parent' property of 'Axes':
version 'CXXABI_1.3.8' not found (required by /lib64/libGLU.so.1)
Error in newplot (line 73)
ax = gca(fig);
What I did was I edited a file called .matlab7rc.sh (located in "path_to_ matlab/bin" folder and its hidden) and uncommented all lines that were(there are several of them):
The following is stated in the file for uncommenting this line(s)
To always use the OpenGL libraries shipped with MATLAB uncomment the next line.
Although it certainly did the trick I'm curious whether using OpenGL that was shipped with MATLAB degrades the performance and in general how does this approach compares to @joe_st_amand's answer.
