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

scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Installing ncurses5-compat-libs solves it. Please add it as a dependency.

@eleftg, Scilab CLI and Scilab advanced CLI behave atypically: when I type something and press any arrow keys, or backspace, the console freezes and I need to kill the process. I reinstalled the package, but the same behaviour occurs.

Scilab, in graphical interface, works as expected.

Hi, in my case Scilab 6.0.2 no longer needs to run in the terminal to work (Plasma, linux-lts, ATI gpu).

I have update the PKGBUILB to the newer version and it works perfectly, so @eleftg can you update it on AUR, please? This is the pastebin page:

@eleftg, any updates on the new pkgbuild? It's been quite a while since the new version released.

scilab 6 has a bug related to jogl jar library, if mesa version is >= 17.2 then scilab will be unable to use graphic hardware acceleration, no graph plotting,

in the console we can read these error logs : X11GLXDrawableFactory - Could not initialize shared resources for :0 at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource( at at Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent( at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent( at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource( ... 2 more

the solution is to build scilab with a beta version of jogl (2.3.3), or to disable gpu hardware acceleration :

How can I fix this: "The theme engine could not be found in module_path: «adwaita»"

Thank you brunohcastro! I didn't know this trick :)

(I've just always run it from the command line)

It's working if run from command line. Also working with Terminal=true on the scilab.desktop file. The same goes for xcos.
