terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
what(): Failed to launch web window with error: Unable to launch the MATLABWindow application. The exit code was: 127
I'm not sure how to proceed, any help is welcome.

Hi Andre Marques,
I understand you are facing an issue while installing MATLAB R2022b on Arch Linux.
MATLAB R2022b is compatible with Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat and SUSE versions of LINUX. We currently have limited support to Arch version of LINUX.
For additional information you may refer to MATLAB and Simulink requirements documentation link.
Furthermore, you can refer to this external link for more information regarding installation of MATLAB.
However, I would like to add that the above-mentioned URL is not certified by MathWorks and is only suggested as a possible workaround and therefore, discretion is advised., For queries pertaining to the resource, it is suggested to reach URL’s support page.
I hope this information helps you.
