There are several threads about this but none of the solutions work or are for Ubuntu Systems.
Im running Windows 10 and R2018a. And I cannot make or read live scripts with the following error message:

Hi Enrique,
This is a bug in MATLAB R2017b (and later) that affects Ubuntu 17.04 (and later). Since the release of Ubuntu 17.04, the libgconf-2.so.4 library does not get installed unless it was already on the system prior to an upgrade. However, this library is needed by the Live Editor in order to run.
As a workaround, please run the following command in the terminal to install the missing library:
sudo apt-get install libgconf2-4
