Matlab asks me to install Arduino package at every session (Linux)

1 view (last 30 days)
Every time I start Matlab and try to use the Arduino package I get the following message:
>> a = arduino('/dev/ttyUSB0', 'Uno')
You need the MATLAB Arduino support package before you can use this feature. Open Support Package Installer to install support for additional MATLAB hardware.
I install it and everything goes fine, no errors. If I restart Matlab and try to use the Arduino package again I get the above message again. Is there anyway to keep the Arduino package installed?
I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit and Matlab R2015b.

Hi Joan,
I understand that every time MATLAB is restarted the Audrino Support package gets removed.
Some of the possible reasons this behavior could happen:
1) If the support package folders are being installed in a temporary folder.
2) If you are executing the RESTOREDEFAULTPATH command this could remove the support packages from the MATLAB Path.
To fix this issue, you can try the following solutions:
1) You can try installing the support package in another folder.
2) Also, after installing the support package you can check the installation directory to see if the files are present.
Hope this helps.
If this does not resolve your issue, you can create a Technical Support Ticket .
Thanks

Yes, I thought about this too, but I can't run Matlab using sudo as I get a license error. Specifically:
License checkout failed.
License Manager Error -9
Your username does not match the username in the license file.
