I recently switched to mac from ubuntu, and I was wondering if there is any way in which I can use the MATLAB installed in a Linux cluster in my mac.

I can run it without user interface, by using ssh and nojvm (i.e. matlab -nojvm, where jvm stands for java virtual machine). I was wondering if it was possible for me to run it with the user interface. When I try to launch MATLAB normally, I get the error Warning: No window system found. Java option 'Desktop' ignored.


It turns out this is perfectly possible, but did not work initially because X11 was not installed. Apparently it is not included in Yosemite. Installing it solved the problem.
