When I try to start the Add-On Explorer in Matlab 2018a on Arch Linux it crashes. I followed the steps described here: to solve some linking issues with the glib libraries but it doesn't seem to work.
Oddly, I can run the ./MATLABWindow binary inside /usr/local/MATLAB/R2018a/bin/glnxa64...
Thanks in advance!

Please try to run the following in the MATLAB Command Window:
>> opengl software
And then try opening the Add on explorer again. It worked for me.
If that works, you can save the preference so that MATLAB always opens with Software OpenGL by running:
>> opengl('save','software')
