In the adventure of attempting to install and use MatLab 2020a on windows 10, I tried and failed the install process. Then on, I jumped ship to ubuntu 19.10 and I managed to successfully download and install the applicatoin MatLab 2020a, but when I installed the application through the ubuntu store and went through the process, the application failed to start.
After the application failed to start I went through scowering the internet for a solution.
sudo chown [yourusername]:[yourusername] ~/.matlab
I've tried it, but It did not allow me to start the application. It straight up doesn't want to start.
