Same here. Just installed today and the window disappears very fast when running. Run in terminal has no problem.

@dentalfloss: ok, I've the same kind of trouble, in i3 scilab fails to run if it is launched from dmenu but everything is ok if I'm running it from the terminal. For the moment I've no idea for that problem.

@eolianoe: Got it working, it was a problem with my config. Interestingly, I am unable to launch scilab via the GUI or gtk-launch from the terminal (xfce4 desktop) - the window shows for about 0.5s then disappears, but the terminal doesn't return and there is no error even with SCIVERBOSE set. Also no evidence of scilab in the process list. Runs fine when scilab is run directly from the terminal. Has anyone else experienced this behaviour?

@dentalfloss: are you sure that you are using the latest PKGBUILD? If so could you send me the full build log to see what is different.

@eolianoe: I am still seeing this error on attempting to compile 6.0.0-3... Any suggestions?

@fusion809: 6.0.0-3 should fix the compilation error, but I don't know which update break the compilation.

@mfpuente.ar: It seems that you have some special configuration in your '_JAVA_OPTIONS' variable, you could try to delete them and rebuild the package.

@leonardojc: modified, thanks

@petronny: JAVA_HOME is no more used, you should set your java environment using 'archlinux-java' (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Java#Switching_between_JVM)
