The latest version has been scilab-2024.0.0, not updated in repo

Thanks @bryanjhv, it is now fixed.

The source URL is now returning a 404, seems like Scilab has changed their download server from what I can see on their website.

For problems in scilab displaying an empty window under wayland/sway using the wmname and changing the environment as such solves the problem.

wmname LG3D

The URL to source should be in HTTPS not HTTP:

Fixed missing fonts in the UI by using system's java, not ideal but the best approach I could find (the other one is to change Scilab's default Look and Feel settings). Also updated so it no longer runs on the terminal.

As for the MESA_GL errors, that is not Scilab's fault, the Intel Media Driver is not properly supported by jogl (also happens with other packages such as Matlab) so there are two options:

  • Running with MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.0

  • Installing the i965 driver and running with MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=i965

Instead of disabling the HW support: Adding MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.0 to the .desktop file fixes the error of graphic windows not displaying any graphs for me.

Adding LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 to the .desktop file fixes the error of graphic windows not displaying any graphs for me.

I took this fix from the scilab package on the AUR
