Installing MATLAB Packages such as YALMIP

MATLAB script packages, such as YALMIP, can be installed directly by the user on their Oscar account. These instructions assume you are using Oscar via the VNC client.

1. Open the Terminal on your VNC session.

2. Navigate to your home folder by typing cd ~

3. mkdir -p MATLAB

4. wget -O yalmip.zip https://github.com/yalmip/yalmip/archive/master.zip

5. unzip yalmip.zip

6. In MATLAB, add the YALMIP-master directory to your path.

  1. In the MATLAB file browser, navigate to the MATLAB folder you created in your home folder. cd ~/MATLAB
  2. Right click on the YALMIP-master folder.
  3. Select Add to Path > Selected Folders and Subfolders. This adds the YALMIP folders to your path.

7. To save your MATLAB path, use the savepath command in the MATLAB command prompt. savepath ~/MATLAB/pathdef.m

YALMIP also requires a solver like SDPT3. The steps below add SDPT3 to MATLAB.

1. Open the Terminal.

2. cd ~/MATLAB

3. wget -O sdpt3.zip https://github.com/sqlp/sdpt3/archive/master.zip

4. unzip sdpt3.zip

5. In MATLAB, add the sdpt3 directory to your path.

  1. In the MATLAB file browser, navigate to the MATLAB folder you created in your home folder. cd ~/MATLAB
  2. Right click on the sdpt3-master folder.
  3. Select Add to Path > Selected Folders and Subfolders. This adds the SDPT3 folders to your path.

6. To update/save your MATLAB path, use the savepath command in the MATLAB command prompt. savepath ~/MATLAB/pathdef.m
