    I'm having a little trouble with MATLAB. When I try to open the program, it automatically opens up X11 but after about 10 seconds the MATLAB icon stops bouncing and disappears. When I run it from X11, it says:

    Pi-2:~ danielchase$ /applications/MATLAB74/bin/maci/matlab
    dyld: Library not loaded: ../../bin/maci/libut.dylib
    Referenced from: /applications/MATLAB74/bin/maci/matlab
    Reason: image not found
    Trace/BPT trap

    The weird thing is that it used to open just fine. I haven't updated or changed MATLAB, it just stopped working one day. libut.dylib is there, in the right directory.

    What's wrong?

    There's a thread about it in mathworks.com:

    No idea if it'll help you, though.

    Also, Brian Arnold from the Mathworks Mac team suggests the following:

    Wow, thanks, it worked. Maybe it's just the desktop icon that has stopped working. I guess I'll just have to load it up that way from now on.

    You can always drag the launcher application to the dock. I created a symbolic link to /Applications/MATLAB/bin/matlab, which I use from xterm.
