In MATLAB, setting OpenGL with hardware acceleration could cause graphic problems especially in Linux systems.

>> opengl('save','hardware')

In ArchLinux, the libraries usually are newer than MATLAB libraries. Using MATLAB libraries together with system libraries could cause some problems, especially graphic faults.

Solution: force MATLAB using system libraries. For example, for

$ cd $MATLAB_HOME/sys/os/glnxa64
$ mv

This could solve graphic problems for R2014b or higher version.
