I have installed clean Ubuntu MATE 20.04 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 ... Scilab cannot create Scilab Java Main-Class (we have not been able to find the main Scilab class. Check if the Scilab and thirdparty packages are available).
so it can't find Java again. I reported bug 1870813 about this problem. But as usual there is no reaction from package maintainers.
What should I do to get Scilab 6.1.0 working on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS?
