Matlab R2018b freezes on splash screen in Ubuntu 18.04
7 views (last 30 days)
I have been using Ubuntu 18.04 since a month now. I have to switch to windows only due to MATLAB, since my efforts to make MATLAB work on Ubuntu have failed miserably. Everytime I install MATLAB (I have tried installing R2020b and R2018b) I get the splash screen after installation- THIS freezes the ENTIRE SYSTEM and I have to force a reboot.
For the people who have used MATLAB in Ubuntu 18.04, please help me here.
Here are my laptop specifications: Dell Inspiron 5575
Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 2200U
Graphic Processor: AMD Radeon Vega 3
Matlab works fine with -nojvm option. It freezes the entire system with -nodesktop option.
Thanks in advance

I believe this to be a Java issue as -nojvm flag works fine, maybe try changing the JVM, refer the following:
