Hi, after all that truble trying to install R from Crane I found that it easily could be installed from Synaptic:) But the installation does not create any icon to start the program. How do I start R from the terminal?

Type "R" in a terminal (no quotes)

Here's a walkthrough on getting R setup also:

I'm hoping the openoffice R extension turns out well, it's still in early development however. But using R would be 100X better with it I think.

Depending on your use of R, there are some GUIs for R. Presently, I use JGR (you can easily download it at their site: http://rosuda.org/JGR/ following the commands described ) but you can also get Rkward (a little limited for me) with Synaptic. There is also an add-on for GNUmeric.
Plenty of choices.
Have fun
