SciLab 6.0.1 and Symbolic Toolbox

Dear All,

I have got a simple question - how to install Symbolic Toolbox for SciLab 6.0.1?
According to tutorial: "https://scilab.in/scilab-symbolic-toolbox", point 5, I got: "liboverload.so: undefined symbol: pvApiCtx".

Be careful with this. I tried to use this toolbox because it was needed to use some of the examples, and I went through a lot of posts trying to solve the problems I had. The final solution that was given to me was that Scilab was meant to be used on a Linux, not Windows environment. Even though they have a Windows version for download. I hope you are using Linux.

Hi Maxcy,

I use linux (kubuntu 18.04), scilab 6.0.1 from scilab.org, not from repository, maxima 5.41.0 with wxMaxima 18.02.0 from repository so I am not afraid about solutions. Unfortunately, for now, I put data to maxima manually to obtain symbolic solutions and than to scilab also manually for simulation of dynamic objects (control toolbox). I have tried to install Symbolic Toolbox according to "https://scilab.in/scilab-symbolic-toolbox" but without good results.
Thank you Maxcy for your suggestions.

As I recall from when I was trying to install this toolbox I had to install 3 different downloads to use the symbol tool.

Has anyone installed this toolbox ever? I've got some problems when I tried to install on macOS.
