When I run Matlab from the terminal in Ubuntu, I get this message in the terminal:
Gtk-Message: 12:12:29.347: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
/usr/local/MATLAB/R2017b/bin/glnxa64/../../sys/os/glnxa64/ version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
Failed to load module: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules/
What is this? How do I fix it?

This error occurs when the version of Java JRE that ships with MATLAB loads a library outside of MATLAB which in turn is incompatible with the version of that ships with MATLAB.
To resolve the issue, please navigate to MATLAB R2017b installation location in your system and remove the “” library file shipped with MATLAB R2017b, so that MATLAB will use the system version of that library:
Note: Here <matlabroot> is the location in your system where MATLAB R2017b is installed.
Eg: ‘/usr/local/MATLAB/R2017B’.
Following are the commands to execute in linux shell to perform the above mentioned operation: (You may need root privilege)
# cd /usr/local/MATLAB/R2017b (or wherever you may have installed MATLAB)
# cd sys/os/glnxa64
# mkdir exclude
# mv* exclude/
# exit
Hope it helps
