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.

Solving only partially. Now scilab opens and crashes/closes right away. Ditto for xcos

Fixed. Many thanks to curufinwe and eolianoe for their suggestions

@curufinwe: I can confirm that deleting the files make scilab works
