[Scilab-users] Cant start Scilab on linux (pop_os) 20.04

Hello,
yesterday i downloaded scilab and 3 apps popped up, scilab, scilab advanced
and scilab cli.
Scilab cli opens a terminal but the other 2 do nothing, but when i type
"scilab" in a normal terminal i get this:
https://pastebin.com/VTVYbrmt
could anyone help me out with this?

Re: Cant start Scilab on linux (pop_os) 20.04

Hello,

It seems to be the same issue than for ubuntu 18.04: the packaged
version of scilab is just not working.
You should download the last version of scilab (
https://www.scilab.org/download/6.1.0/scilab-6.1.0.bin.linux-x86_64.tar.gz 
), untar it and launch it.

Hope it helps,

Antoine

ok i downloaded and extracted it, but im not sure how to run it, double
clicking scilab in the bin folder only opens it in a text editor (sry im
kinda new to linux)

ok i got it working, i had to do ./scilab on that folder, but i got the same
error this guy had:  https://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16418
<https://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16418>   so i used his
workaround of installing libtinfo5, trying to run scilab-bin the same way
gives me a libtinfo*6* error though, not sure how that works but i tried
installing libtinfo6 the same way but nothing happened.
Also, i see in another folder that there are some scilab.desktop files for
scilab, do i have to put those somewhere in order for them to appear in my
apps?
