After a recent update of my Manjaro OS, I'm unable to open Matlab.
I get the following error message:
MATLAB is selecting SOFTWARE OPENGL rendering.

It is my understanding that after you updated your OS, you are getting the shared error message while starting MATLAB in your linux machine.
Generally, this error shows up if you have a missing “libcrypt.so.1” library. This library is a part of “libxcrypt” package. Try to run the below command in your linux terminal:
>>sudo yum install libxcrypt-compat
Hope it helps!!
