Just some random notes about MATLAB.
Curve fitting toolbox GUI hangs
If I try to use the curve fitting
toolbox by typing
the MATLAB prompt, the cftool GUI loads but it hangs before allowing me
to do anything. I’m on Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit and I’ve tried Matlab R2011b
and R2012a. This problem has been discussed on Matlab
and the solution seems to be to start matlab with
matlab -softwareopengl (which works for me).
