We tried some things, but it didn't work... (because by default it doesn't work as it used to work with Windows)

Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't provide enough information. What DE are you using (Unity, KDE, Gnome, etc.). What program do you want the m-file to open in (MATLAB, emacs, vi, etc).

For Ubuntu 16.04 this is different so.
What worked for me is appending %F to the end of Exec=some/path which is in my matlab.desktop file.
Locate the matlab.desktop file its either in
~/.local/share/applications
or
~/usr/share/applications
I found the solution here Also if you don't have a matlab.desktop file then you may want to create one link to some relevant help to create launcher icon

Could you please explain what exactly you did? I can't make it work. Could you maybe copy the content of your .desktop file?
