scilab 6 has a bug related to jogl jar library, if mesa version is >= 17.2 then scilab will be unable to use graphic hardware acceleration, no graph plotting,

http://forum.jogamp.org/Mesa-17-2-0-renderer-driver-name-change-error-causes-GLProfile-not-mapped-initialization-error-td4038176.html

in the console we can read these error logs : javax.media.opengl.GLException: X11GLXDrawableFactory - Could not initialize shared resources for :0 at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource(X11GLXDrawableFactory.java:317) at jogamp.opengl.SharedResourceRunner.run(SharedResourceRunner.java:295) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:748) Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent(GLContextImpl.java:625) at jogamp.opengl.GLContextImpl.makeCurrent(GLContextImpl.java:539) at jogamp.opengl.x11.glx.X11GLXDrawableFactory$SharedResourceImplementation.createSharedResource(X11GLXDrawableFactory.java:293) ... 2 more

the solution is to build scilab with a beta version of jogl (2.3.3), or to disable gpu hardware acceleration :

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1

In order order to update (and/or build), you may need to uninstall scilab then build it and finally reinstall it to avoid conflicts between the two versions.

For now, scilab fails to run when launched from outside a terminal.
