/usr/bin/scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Obviosly: java is missing

That lib is i.e. part of openjdk :


to run java programs you need to set some environmentvariables:

    export JRE_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jre
    export JAVA_HOME=/path/to/your/javaapp
    java  StartMe.MainClass

(replace StartMe.... with the app you wanne run)

the installation of openjdk should setup your pc to run java programs, but you will have to reboot/relogin your desktopsession to make it work on global.

In case of Scilab there will be a startupscript for sure, so you may need to tamper it a bit (s.a.).
