MatLab on Fedora 33?

Hi there,

I was noticing that elementary OS has Matlab and Mathematica in the Appstore

Is there a way to get mathematica and/or matlab on fedora?

MATLAB and Mathematica are proprietary software.

Does fedora permit proprietary software in any case? I prefer open source but my University used MATLAB and mathematica

It’s better to let you see the documentation. Things can be complicated.

Matlab can be downloaded from the origin. Download MATLAB, Simulink, Stateflow and Other MathWorks Products

Maybe you’ll find GNU Octave useful.
https://www.r-project.org/ is also packaged in Fedora.

Wow thanks I will check that out. Also I noticed Fedora has a Scientific version of the OS. Do you know if that is version is packaged with software like that?

Wow these are all open source programs?

Incredible

Those programs are all packaged for Fedora and available in Fedora’s repositories. No need to install Fedora Scientific spin. You can simply dnf install ... on any Fedora system that you may already have installed and running.

Also, Fedora does not prohibit you from installing third-party proprietary software (if available for Fedora). It’s just that it must not be included in Fedora’s free repositories.

Matlab on Linux: System Requirements for MATLAB - MATLAB & Simulink . Seems doable. Either use the RHEL package or the Suse package. I would try this in a VM before messing up my host system with dependency issues.

Is not well supported but you’ve got alternatives for example:

1.- Error while installing MATLAB R2020a on Fedora 32 - MATLAB Answers - MATLAB Central

Although you can build from podman well supported in :fedora:

just change docker command by podman just that…

Thanks very much I will check that out. sincerely appreciate you taking the time to assist.

Hello.

Another alternative is to install a Windows 10 virtual machine and set up Matlab and Mathematica. That’s what I do for all propietary software, whether has it a Fedora’s rpm or not.

Regards.
