Graphics Display

We recommend that Solaris/Linux users use Virtual Network Computing (VNC) for their X display. VNC can be used even on systems where there is no hardware frame buffer. It is easy to use, can be easily started with the boot scripts, provides complete user control, and has good performance. For information about use of the VNC software with the MATLAB Web Server, see:

The VNC software requires installation of Perl. Both VNC and Perl are available in binary form over the Web for free distribution.

Linux users should find Perl already installed on their systems.

Solaris users need to download the Perl distribution and decompress it with the zcat version of the gunzip utility. This utility is found in
$MATLAB/webserver/bin/sol2/zcat. Read Downloading and Installing Perl for directions.
