#34 Installation ends abruptly after finding libSBML bindings


SMBL toolbox's installation ends abruptly after finding libSBML bindings. I get the following message:

Installing the SBMLToolbox.

* Doing preliminary checks of runtime environment ...
- This appears to be MATLAB and not Octave.
- MATLAB reports the OS is 64-bit Linux.

Checking for libSBML MATLAB binding

Document written
libSBML MATLAB binding found and working

Installation failed
The directories were not added to the Path

Please help to resolve. I have Ubuntu linux system with MATLAB R2011a.

    This error can occur if you do not have permission to write to the MATLAB path. You need to run MATLAB as an administrator/using sudo.

    The install script should then work.

    This appears to be an old issue that may have been resolved. I'm going ahead and closing it.
