You need to leave off the '.m'. Without the .m the -r argument
becomes the command to execute (through the normal command
resolution procedure, which includes looking for functions).
With the .m the -r argument became a request to display the
field named 'm' of the structure named 'testRemote'.

You specifically said "PC" in your original message. A personal computer
running Linux is usually referred to a "desktop", not as a "PC"
(which implies Windows.)

The startup options for Matlab are slightly different for Linux;
the documentation I referred you to listed them. In particular on
Linux if you do not want graphics to come up, you should use
the '-nodesktop' option as well as -nosplash

matlab -nodesktop -nosplash -r FunctionName

the pressure of real misery, it becomes open and sensitive to the
ideal apprehension of ideal calamities." -- Sir Walter Scott
