while executing the loader.sce of ocatve interface toolbox it is giving the following error "-->exec loader.sce -->// This file is released under the 3-clause BSD license.

Which OS and Scilab version are you running it on? How did you install Scilab?

Ubuntu 16.04, i am using scilab 5.5.2, installed it using [sudo apt-get install scilab]

This toolbox only works for Ubuntu 14.04 as clearly stated on the Scilab website.

Thank you, I have switched to 14.04 and Octave toolbox is working fine. But the problem persists while installing DSP toolbox, the error while trying to execute demo program is:

"-->exec demo.sce
