    Unhappy Can't Start R Commander

    When I try to run R Commander, the window pops up but is unresponsive. Nothing will respond to clicks, and there's nothing to do but Ctrl-C it.

    Code:
    r --interactive
    library(Rcmdr)
    Loading required package: tcltk
    Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
    Loading required package: grDevices
    Loading required package: utils
    Loading required package: car
    Loading required package: stats
    Loading required package: graphics
    Loading required package: MASS
    Loading required package: nnet
    Loading required package: survival
    Loading required package: splines
    
    Rcmdr Version 1.6-2
    
    
    Attaching package: 'Rcmdr'
    
    
    The following object(s) are masked from 'package:tcltk':
    
        tclvalue
    I tried installing the more recent packages from here: http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu, with the same result except that the following also appears in the console:
    Code:
    The following object(s) are masked from 'package:stats':
    
        nobs
    Does anyone know how to work around this?

    Re: Can't Start R Commander

    Have you tried installing from the Ubuntu Software Center? The first time I installed R Commander I did it manually and it was a lot of work. When I got my newer laptop I discovered it was in the USC, and it installed well, taking care of all of the dependencies for me.

    Yes, I installed everything from the Ubuntu repositories. Although I can't say that package r-cran-rcmdr has all the dependencies it needs, specifically it complains that leaps, Hmisc and aplpack are missing.

    Not a solution, but an alternative: The R-plugin for gedit. It works quite well.
