First off, relevant specs:
- Arch Linux x86_64
- Thinkpad T450s
- Kernel: 4.13.12-1-ARCH
- Shell: zsh 5.4.2
- WM: i3 + Ly (w/ polybar, rofi)
I am having a problem with getting MATLAB to launch from rofi, or even from a menu in polybar. It starts perfectly fine when I invoke the "matlab" command from the terminal, but whenever I attempt to use a gui solution (such as dmenu or rofi, or the menu module in polybar) to launch it, the MathWorks splash screen appears for a second, closes, and pings a system beep. I am an intermediate level linux user, and have exhausted all of my best attempts at deriving a solution. Help!
edit: also, matlab is in my $PATH
