Matlab installation on Linux

The Matlab R2014 installer on Linux by default proposes to install in /usr/local/.
If you want to follow the default, you then have to run the installer as root.
The problem is, that then your pathdef.m file is also locked.
The workaround I found is to change its permissions to 666 (cf. screenshot below).
If somebody knows a better solution, please let me know
