MATLAB R2023b System Requirements for Linux
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is no longer supported as of R2023b
Minimum: Any Intel or AMD x86-64 processor with two or more cores
Minimum: 8 GB
3.8 GB for just MATLAB
No specific graphics card is required, but a hardware accelerated graphics card supporting OpenGL 3.3 with 1GB GPU memory is recommended.
Use of vendor-supplied proprietary drivers is strongly recommended.
GPU acceleration using Parallel Computing Toolbox requires a GPU with a specific range of compute capability. For more information, see GPU Computing Requirements.
Running MATLAB and Simulink on Linux
MATLAB and Simulink have been validated on the Linux distributions listed on this page. It is likely that other distributions with Linux kernel version 3.10 or later and glibc version 2.17 or later can successfully run MATLAB and Simulink, but technical support will be limited.
MathWorks follows the vendors’ lifecycle guidance to determine which minor versions of each distribution are validated. Refer the vendors’ websites for more information.
MATLAB and Simulink are validated on standard installations of the distributions listed on this page. “Minimal” or “core” installations of Linux may lack the necessary software packages required to install and run MATLAB and Simulink. Information about which packages are required to run MATLAB is available on MATLAB Answers.
