How to install Matlab on ubuntu server 10.04 via command line

So I did not have x-server install on the server and it was not allowing me to do the GUI install. So instead I tried:

./install -t

for the text install but I got an error after the license agreement:
update/bin/glnxa64/xsetup: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I did this:

apt-get install libxp6

and then it worked just fine using ./install -t
Hopefully this saves somebody some time, and stops them from doing a ubuntu-desktop install on a server just to install Matlab
