Scilab installation tcl tk configure not working


I am installing Scilab 4.1.2 in Ubuntu 14.04 manually. I entered the folder and pressed ./configure but after some steps it shows

Code:
configure: error: header file tcl.h has been found for 8.4*  but no corresponding tcl library (ie libtcl8.4.so)
How to resolve this problem? Directly installing Scilab will install the latest version of Scilab but i need to install previous versions.

Welcome to LQ.

A manual build requires a lot of prerequisites.
http://wiki.scilab.org/Compiling%20S...U-Linux%20Unix
I.e. $ sudo apt-get build-dep scilab
... will install the 271 MB build prerequisites for scilab(-5).


tcl.h for 8.4* / libtcl8.4 etc. etc. :
$ sudo apt-get install tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev

Sir, i run the command
Code:
apt-get build-dep scilab
, everything got installed but the problem with the libtcl8.4.so still persists.

Code:
sudo apt-get install tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev
returns everything is already installed.

Ubuntu 14.04 : Which version are you using ? ? i686 or x86_64 ?
This command will reply with your <arch> : $ uname -m


And a link for downloading "Scilab 4.1.2", please.
... Then I may do a test build, to track down the issues.

Sir, I checked and my arch is i686. Actually my problem is i want W3Scilab( a web interface for Scilab) http://sourceforge.net/projects/w3scilab/ to run on my machine. When i installed Scilab by sudo apt-get install scilab, it installs the latest version of Scilab which i believe is not compatible with W3Scilab. The author of W3Scilab developed it with Scilab 4.1 versions so i wanted to install that on my machine.

The link that you gave http://archive.debian.org/debian-arc....1.2-6_all.deb

How to install that on Ubuntu?

← #6 : i686 → →

``scilab´´ is two packages :
1) scilab_4.1.2-6_all.deb
http://archive.debian.org/debian-arc....1.2-6_all.deb
2) scilab-bin_4.1.2-6_i386.deb
http://archive.debian.org/debian-arc...1.2-6_i386.deb

Download the packages.
Click the packages, and your 'Package Installer' will install
the two packages, and the dependencies ... if any.

Ref. #6, #7, #8.

Did version 4.1.2 work fairly OK ?

#8 : 4.1.1
http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubunt...erse/s/scilab/
{ scilab_4.1.1-1_all.deb, scilab-bin_4.1.1-1_i386.deb }
