I am trying to install MATLAB but I am facing some issues.
According to the instructions I should use "sudo ./install" in oder to make changes to the '/usr/local/MATLAB/R2022b' but then because of using 'sudo', the Login Name on the install window is coming out blank and I cannot even change it or hit next.
But when I dont use sudo, the Login Name is correct and but I cannot proceed since I cannot make changes to '/usr/local/MATLAB/R2022b'.
Can anyone suggest me the right way of installing?

A number of things you can do:
  1. Click in a different window and then click back in the text box to enter your email/password (that's what other people seem to be coming here for, at least.) You can also try this with Alt+Tab.
  2. Change the permissions on your MATLAB installation so that you can have it write the license file
  3. Run xhost +SI:localuser:root in your Linux Terminal. Keep in mind that running GUI applications on Linux is largely discouraged.
  4. Maunally create a license file in the License Center and then place it in one of MATLAB's licenses folders.

That’s because the GUI windows MATLAB tries to use on Linux suck. This bug has been around for nearly 6 years now, as you’ll see below.
