Hello Yan,

I haven't found the exact reason, but scilab doesn't always work when you are 
using the clearlooks theme. Can you try again with another gtk theme and let 
me know if it works?

Actually the '/usr/bin/scilab' program isn't a console program: it starts the 
/usr/lib/scilab-3.1.1/bin/zterm -e /usr/lib/scilab-3.1.1/bin/scilex
You can start the console program with:

kind regards,
