**Q2: When I run "make matlab" or "make matlab2" to compile the Matlab mex bindings, it runs without error, but no mex file is generated.**

**A2:**This may indicate that the Makefile finds the wrong "mex" executable on the search path. It appears that some TeX typesetting installations contain a "mex" executable that is picked up before the Matlab mex compiler.

Type "which mex" on the command line. The Matlab mex compiler should be located on the same path as the "matlab" executable. If the system finds the wrong mex executable, you have to edit the path manually in Makefile.incl:

Find the line "MEXBIN = mex", and replace "mex" with the full path, e.g.

MEXBIN = /usr/local/Matlab/matlab-R2013a/bin/mex
