    I can run the program now. But can I add a shortcut or something to the Unity Launcher? Simply lock it to the launcher, close it and try to run it by clicking the launcher didnt work.

    Then you need to use the command like;
    Code:
    sh -c "cd /path/to/bin && ./scilab"

    Pull out one of the launcher from dash to the Desktop (doesn't matter which app you pull to the Desktop). Right click and hit Properties.

    Change the comman (in my case):
    Code:
    sh -c "cd ./Downloads/scilab-5.4.0/bin && ./scilab"
    You can also give it a name, icon and comment.

    How do you pull out the launcher? I tried dragging it from the launcher area to the desktop area, but nothing happened.

    No, drag a whatever launcher from 'Dash'.
    Hit the 'Super Key' to display Dash (the window button).

    It worked, thank you. It took me quite a while because when I used the LibreOffice Writer launcher, the launcher file broke. I used Calculator instead.
