Tested the scilab 5.5.2 for ubuntu which works great. However, I did not test it before applying the jogl2 patch :-o.
Had a look at the source and it seems that the Ubuntu version is patched to use the generic version of jogl2. I would like to try and get this patch integrated in the Scilab source tree. Probably a difficult and slow process. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to mesa in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1742894 Title: Scilab does not start after some upgrades on Ubuntu Xenial Status in Mesa: Confirmed Status in libjogl2-java package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in mesa package in Ubuntu: Invalid Status in scilab package in Ubuntu: Invalid Status in libjogl2-java source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in mesa source package in Xenial: Invalid Status in scilab source package in Xenial: Invalid Status in libjogl2-java source package in Artful: Fix Committed Status in mesa source package in Artful: Invalid Status in scilab source package in Artful: Invalid Status in scilab package in Debian: Fix Released Bug description: [Impact] Software that use libjogl2-java (Scilab, Matlab,...) fail to run, because Mesa dropped 'Gallium' from the renderer string. [Test case] Steps to reproduce: 1. have installed Scilab on Ubuntu Xenial system 2. install system updates 3. try to launch Scilab from GUI - it does not start 4. try to launch Scilab from terminal - it does not start with the following output in the terminal: $ scilab Could not create a Scilab main class.

Check if the Scilab and thirdparty packages are available). Expected results: Scilab works normally on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS system. Actual results: see error above. [Regression potential] The fix is a simple oneliner that allows libjogl2-java to detect Mesa with both new and original version of Mesa.
