    How do I start R from terminal?

    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
