So whenever I try to install Matlab, the first image appears, but then goes away and that's the end of it. Here's what I'm doing-

user@host$> cd ~/mathworks_downloads
user@host$> unzip matlab_R2012a_student_glnx86_installer.zip
user@host$> ./install

The Matlab logo and image pop up here for a few seconds before going away. This is the output I receive-

Could not find JRE for glnxa64.  Trying glnx86.

After that, nothing happens, although apparently a Matlab window is supposed to open. Is this a problem caused by the fact that I'm running OpenJKD 7 instead of JRE 7u7?
