thanks,  that worked in the sense that matlab starts.
However when I start Matlab I receive
ERROR: object '/opt/trinity/lib/kgtk/' from LD_PRELOAD 
cannot be preloaded: ignored.

and worse I cannot use the tcsh shell.
Everytime I use the shell this message appears and then env not defined 
and my settings in .login and
.tcshrc are ignored.
