I have installed clean Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS and installed Scilab from repository here with
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install scilab
After installation I tried to launch it from GUI (Applications → Other → Scilab) – it does not start.
Then I tried to launch it from terminal with
scilab command. Terminal output is as follows:
$ scilab /usr/bin/scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
so it can't find Java. I reported bug 1762999 about this problem.
I checked existence of
$ dpkg -S libjava.so openjdk-11-jre-headless:amd64: /usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk-amd64/lib/libjava.so
so it is in place.
What should I do to get Scilab 6.0.1 working on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS?
