Installing Scilab on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

The default install of Scilab doesn’t work on Ubuntu 20.04. I downloaded Scilab 6.1.0 from the Scilcab website. When executing the scilab executable, the following error occurs:

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Turns out I have installed, so the fix is:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
