Hi All,
I have an Ubuntu machine that I can access only through the terminal. Matlab is installed in this machine and now I need to activate Matlab. Is it possible to activate Matlab only through the terminal? How can I do that?
This is the error message I get when I try to run Matlab:
Error: Activation cannot proceed. You may either:
1. Set an X11 display, and restart the activation process
2. Use the silent activation feature
3. Activate using the license center

Thank you for your reply.
In the link in your reply, I haven't found how to successfully activate MATLAB. I have tried to run but I get the same error message.
My goal, is to activate MATLAB with the Ubuntu terminal without GUI.
