This question already has an answer here:
I have installed Scilab with
sudo apt-get install scilab, and all went good until I tried to open the software, it just does not open, what I tried to do was install a new version of Java, and it make it kind of work, when I start it from the console like this:
cd /usr/bin ./scilab
but it still having some kind of trouble, I want it to start with the icon, but it looks to be impossible, please help me.
Warning: Could not find Java package '/usr/share/java/jlatexmath-fop-1.0.6.jar'. Some problems during the loading of the Java libraries occurred. This could lead to inconsistent behaviours. Please check SCI/etc/classpath.xml. Gtk-Message: 00:21:02.501: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
also I tried to install the 6.0.1 version of Scilab from the page, but at the moment of opening Scilab from the bin folder, a error comes up, saying that Scilab can not make the main class of Scilab :/ heelp
