[Scilab-users] Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

The scilab-6.0.0 binary release was working on my xubuntu 17.4 system,
then I upgraded to 17.10 and since then I see the following error
message when I run the 'scilab' command:-

Cannot find this look and feel:
[GTK look and feel - com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel] not
supported on this platform
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I see this issue has also been reported on bugzilla (
http://bugzilla.scilab.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15145 ) but I don't see any
workaround there, even though it seems to be marked as resolved.

Anyone know anything more?  Confused,

Paul

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

There seems to be little or no interest at all on this issue by scilab
developers.

The only reply/workaround was provided by Clement David in the post you
mention on Bugzilla, but it did not worked for me.

If you can count on a distro's builded version  of scilab 6.0, you have
the option to install it.

I tried changing the thirdparty/java link to point to my system java
and/or moving the lib/thirdparty/libz* files as suggested in the
bugzilla discussion but got exactly the same results as reported by
adhefe (is that you?).  I also tried completely uninstalling all
system java packages and so just relying on the scilab-6.0.0 tarfile
java but the error message remains as I reported initially.
Reinstalling the system java didn't change anything either (which BTW
is 8u151-b12-0ubuntu0.17.10.2).

Unfortunately Ubuntu 17.10 still seems to be on Scilab 5.5.2.  I tried
compiling the latest source from git but get stuck during ./configure
with something else I don't understand:-

  configure: error: ARPACK library found, but seems not to work
properly. Please make sure you are using arpack-ng

Not sure if this is a known problem, haven't had chance to go into it yet.

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

Dear Paul!

Seems to be incompatibility between upstream (Scilab.org) and GNU/Linux distributions.

You can install scilab 6.0.0-1 packages from 18.04 LTS to your 17.10 as described on AskUbuntu.

Hi Nikolay,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I followed the instructions you linked to,
and succeeded in installing 6.0.0 from bionic, but unfortunately I
still get the same problem on startup:-

Cannot find this look and feel:
[GTK look and feel - com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel] not
supported on this platform
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I also tried 'scilab -nwni' to verify it was 6.0.0 I was running:-

Scilab 6.0.0 (Feb 14 2017, 12:49:55)

--> quit

So now I'm not sure what to try :-(

Paul

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

Oops, forget that last message!!!

I had accidentally left the old tarfile binary in my path and that's
why I was getting the same results (should have guessed that from the
-nwni timestamp, grrr).

Anyway, after removing it I can now start Scilab 6.0.0 in Ubuntu 17.10 :-)

Thanks Nikolay!

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

I seem to remember doing a "sudo apt update" after step 2, before step
3.  I also made sure I had removed the 5.5.2 release before trying
this, just to make sure things didn't get confused.  Though as shown
in my last message I still managed to confuse myself a little bit by
not removing the tarfile 6.0.0 release I had lying around :-)

Hope this helps,
Paul

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

Thanks,
I solved it updating too. Anyway, that version is the one with input command bugged. I wish i could use a nigthly build where that bug is fixed. Also, trying to download a nigthly build lead me to 404 http error.

Re: Scilab-6.0.0 stopped working

Hi,
I'm still having trouble to use scilab 6.0.0 in Ubuntu 17.10. As i stated in previous mail, i managed ton install ubuntu 18.04 version, but it has the well known input function bug. I can live without input, despite i use scilab for teaching numerical methods and input is very useful. But then i realized atoms is also not working, at least in my pc. I get the error 

So, i thought i could compile scilab myself, but when running configure file, i get this error:

configure: error: curl : library missing. (Cannot find symbol curl_easy_setopt). Check if curl is installed and if the version is correct

Curl is installed:

curl -V
curl 7.55.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.55.1 OpenSSL/1.0.2g zlib/1.2.11 libidn2/2.0.2 libpsl/0.18.0 (+libidn2/2.0.2) librtmp/2.3

So i wen to config.log and found this:

I have libssl and libcrypto, but i think i have newer versions. I could not manage to install those versions.

Is this the problem? how can i solve this? 
Thanks

Sorry, this is the error i'm having with atoms:

        No ATOMS module is available. Please, check your Internet connection or make sure that your OS is compatible with ATOMS. 

If i do atomsSystemUpdate() i get:

Scanning repository http://atoms.scilab.org/6.0 ...

Hi,
The 6.0.1 release that was just announced solved all the problems! Thanks a lot to everyone.
