I am trying to get Scilab 6.1.1 running in a new Computer (Xubuntu Linux
20-04, nVidia T-600 with proprietary driver) from
scilab-6.1.1.bin.linux-x86_64.tar.gz in the same way as in another
computer with the same OS but with Java 8,
But when I try to start from the terminal:
stefan@LenovoTS:/usr/local/scilab/scilab-6.1.1$ ./bin/scilab &
stefan@LenovoTS:/usr/local/scilab/scilab-6.1.1$ X Error of failed
request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 152 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 110
Current serial number in output stream: 111
scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libtinfo.so.5: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory
I have uninstalled Java 11 and installed Java 8 to no avail.
If I install Scilab from Ubuntu repositories with
$ sudo apt install scilab
I get a working version 6.1.0 (including graphics!), except for
Preferences in both command window and Scinotes! So I can't change font
in either of them.
Can anybody help?
