Dear Opensuse Users: I would like to use the latest version of scilab from the opensuse science repo, but there is a java issue with the install. I thought YaST was supposed to take care of dependencies like this. Here is the command line output. How could this be trouble-shot?
/usr/bin/scilab-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Scilab 5.5.0 (Aug 5 2014, 20:23:55)

Note that full Java is not default installed you have to install it. If you upgraded then the upgrade may not have brought in the latest java (depending on how you upgraded) the rpm sees java thinks the requirement is installed and that is that.
Hi g - I checked that but was not sure how to interpret what I found… these come up when as installed when searching in YaST for “java” (and a** whole lot** of other stuff - some obvious, some less so… but this at least “looks like” java to me)
java-1_5_0-gcj-compat - JPackage Runtime Scripts for GCJ
| java-1_5_0-gcj-compat-devel - JPackage development scripts for GCJ
| java-1_7_0-openjdk - Java runtime environment based on OpenJDK 7 and IcedTea 7
java-1_7_0-openjdk-headless - JRE based on OpenJDK 7 and IcedTea 7 without X, audio and video support
Should I just install everything with a name like java-***** ?
