Create a MATLAB launcher in Ubuntu

Typically, the MATLAB install does not add a launcher to your start menu. If you want to do so, it's very simple. Just follow these steps:

First download the icon and save it in the proper location:

$ sudo wget http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Matlab_Logo.png -O /usr/share/icons/matlab.png

Next, create the launcher:

$ sudo wget 'https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MATLAB?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=matlab-r2010a.desktop' -O /usr/share/applications/matlab.desktop
