1- Yes Matlab works as expected without going through ssh. 2- Repeat the above but first do a "ssh -X localhost" triggers the problem.
3- Both scenarios hold regardless of how I login ("Ubuntu", "Ubuntu on Xorg" or "Unity"). As you mentionned the DISPLAY variable I checked the following (maybe it was obvious, but not to me): - ssh@localhost - echo $DISPLAY returns localhost:10.0 - export DISPLAY=:0 - matlab & then plot(1,1). - it works.
