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,

http://forum.jogamp.org/Mesa-17-2-0-renderer-driver-name-change-error-causes-GLProfile-not-mapped-initialization-error-td4038176.html

in the console we can read these error logs : javax.media.opengl.GLException: X11GLXDrawableFactory - Could not initialize shared resources for :0 at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource(X11GLXDrawableFactory.java:317) at jogamp.opengl.SharedResourceRunner.run(SharedResourceRunner.java:295) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748) Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent(GLContextImpl.java:625) at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent(GLContextImpl.java:539) at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource(X11GLXDrawableFactory.java:293) ... 2 more

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

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1

In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.

I've been trying to install Scilab from AUR, and all goes well until it starts linking. I have the following error: In file included from src/cpp/XMLDocFieldsGetter.hxx:24, from src/cpp/XMLFieldsGetter.cpp:24: ../../modules/xml/src/cpp/XMLDocument.hxx:26:1: note: 'extern "C"' linkage started here extern "C" ^~~~~~~~~~ make[3]: [Makefile:1147: src/cpp/libscicompletion_algo_la-XMLFieldsGetter.lo] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/pamac-build-rgonzalez/scilab/src/scilab-6.0.2/modules/completion' make[2]: [Makefile:815: all] Error 2 make[2]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/pamac-build-rgonzalez/scilab/src/scilab-6.0.2/modules/completion' make[1]: [Makefile:827: all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory '/var/tmp/pamac-build-rgonzalez/scilab/src/scilab-6.0.2/modules' make: [Makefile:1601: all-recursive] Error 1 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting...

Is anybody having the same issue? Can someone indicate me how to fix this error?. I know I can go Scilab website and download the package, it works fine. However, I want to get it installed from AUR.

Thanks

@Xwang: sorry, I forgot to test in a clean chroot...

I had to install time to solve a compile error (/usr/bin/time not found). I suggest to add time to the compile depends.

Build Error cannot satisfy apache-ant>=1.9 Changed buildfile to ant>=1.9 and it builds and installs.

Start from start menu but immediately exits.

Anyhow it starts from commandline ....

Builds fine here.

Hello,

It's seems that the PKGBUILD bug in "package()" after this step : "Buildfile: /tmp/pamac-build-adrien/scilab/src/scilab-6.0.1/modules/graph/build.xml".

Thank for help.

Can't build with java-enviroment>8. First, I get configure: error: Cannot find javah And I can fix it by export JAVAH=/usr/bin/javah. And then, I get some gramma errors.

Changing java-runtime>=8 and java-enviroment>=8 to java-runtime=8 and java-enviroment=8 works fine.

all issues should be fixed in 6.0.1-4, the change will also be made in the scilab-git package by the end of the week. Thanks again @goglecm for the clues
