I have a script which I run from the Matlab desktop/display. I wish to run it from the Linux command line without the desktop (using the -nodesktop option). But there are functions in the script which exit if running without the Matlab desktop. Is there a way in the script to not execute those commands if not running on the desktop?

From the documentation:
USED = desktop('-inuse') % returns whether or not the Desktop is currently in use. It does not start the Desktop.
This function returns a logical value which you could use for some conditional statements.
