Linux: Console not working when starting from start menu

Hello,
I have this problem that when I start scilab from my startmenu, the console doesn't accept any input and when I execute a script (from scinotes) scilab crashes.
However when I start scilab from the terminal "scilab &" everything is fine.

Any clues, is this a known issue?

Re: Linux: Console not working when starting from start menu

Dear, Richard!

Yes, it is known issue - see http://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14682 .
As temporary solution I created desktop launcher with command inside
env LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" xterm -e /home/nikolay/Software/scilab-6.0.0/bin/scilab
So Scilab starts with xterm terminal emulator. You may change xterm to other terminal with corresponding options.

Hope this helps.

Re: Linux: Console not working when starting from start menu

Hello Nikolay,
thanks for the prompt reply!

Under Plasma5 I can just check the "Run in terminal" option which also works then.
However I also replied on the bug, hopefully it will be fixed soon...

cheers
