Can anyone confirm that the rstudio package is now in the 16.04 repos
? That would be exciting!

Kind regards,

building R Devel --enable-R-shlib


It has been a while since my last R Devel build, and now I'm running
into an issue I'm not sure how to isolate.  After updating to the latest
SVN sources, and using:

R_BATCHSAVE="--no-save --no-restore" \

    --with-lapack \
    --with-readline \
    --with-tcl-config=/usr/lib/tcl8.6/tclConfig.sh \
---<--------------------cut here---------------end--------------------->---

the build shows several warnings about function dataptr:

uninstall R on Kubuntu

Dear list,[a] now is apparently the time, the R version I have installed so far has reached its days'
end.[a1] Back on R help mailing list-I have to admit openly-I was advised so under the impression of being
unnerved on the part of the corresponding R expert responder to a certain degree by the question of mine
whether there were any error messages or unresolved dependencies to expect associated with other R
packages (perhaps missing thus far on the computer of interest) when one would simply un-compress
compressed R package file folders into the R package folder of inevitable choice.[a2] As I want to put it
clearly and honestly: I assumed not and continue not to assume that either R Help Mailing List or R
Sig-Debian (Help) Mailing List would out-compete each other on that (as presented i
 n [a1]) or any conceivable technical issue with R. To assign to R Sig-Debian (Help) Mailing List and be
further on assigned to the general R Help Mailing List is a conscious decision not to!
too-special problems which could not stem from any other source but from the operating system R is used on by
me--consequently using a Linux distro at least similar to Debian for hosting and running R software on,
brought that step with it logically (I at least perceive it that way...)-where they would not belong
to.[b] As with other software on Linux Kubuntu 14.04 LTS, the user would have to use a command of the type
"sudo apt-get autoremove [packagename]" as a root to finally get rid of that specific package.[c] The
problem, as it appears to me right now, is: Which package(s) were one to discard and in turn to download and
re-install a newer version of, so that eventually R by the end of this process emerges updated to a higher
version number than one had previously (in my case R version
  still is 3.0.2) at one's disposal?[d] Any help on this issue is appreciated and welcome.[e] post scriptum:
Is there a way/ possibility to conserve the bunch of R packages integrated into m!
 y recent
installation (especially those made available to R via installation by way of "Synaptic" Kubuntu Linux
single-package installation manager) over time or would it rather be a matter of a separate
"re-installation day"? Thank you very much in advance.Best regards,Markus Hofstetter

care TIMES two

Dear list,[1] recently when searching the list of Kubuntu (14.04 LTS)-available software packages via
"synaptic" I was quite surprised to find that a package called "caret" had a strong similarity in name with
an R (version 3.0.2 installed) package mentioned in a book on R which I read.[2] As there was no indication
to the existence of a CRAN package really called "r(-****)-caret" but to that of a "general" (K)ubuntu
package of quite the same name that is furthermore and to-date uninstalled on my system, the following
question arose to me:[3] When there was a package in R (run on a Kubuntu system) whose name "coincided" with
that of a (K)ubuntu software package also available to (K)ubuntu users, would it hence be necessary to
install that "general" package OF BOTH LIKEWISE-NAMED ONES first
  on that very Linux system so that upon importing and unpacking the .gz.zip file containing the
corresponding package from a trustable source (CRAN) the latter step (import+unpacking of the
compressed file) could at all bear fruits in that THE SAME-NAME EARMARKED R PACKAGE would operate on the
R-hosting Linux system at all?[4] I have to admit that which ran through my mind and materialised as item
[3] of this email could appear confusing; the "fear" of not being able to use an R functionality on my Linux
OS without enabling the latter to allow for the operation of software capability imported and therewith
plugged in to unfold its power within the bounds of the former (R) is the simple reason to turn to you.Best
regards,Markus Hofstetter

R package update on Kubuntu

Dear list,[1]I use a current and continuously updated Linux
 distribution (Kubuntu, 14.XY < LTS < 15.10) and since not so long I decided to 
venture into R statistical programming by means of an editor suitable 
for KDE called "rkward"; the R version installed on that Linux machine 
is version 3.0.2.[2]I experienced problems concerning the installation 
of R packages and R packages' updates as well as editor updates (you don't 
have to worry to deal with the latter as I have still to contact the 
"rkward" team on that issue) lately. [3]My most important problem by now is that I
 apparently were using one mirror (a "https://" mirror of a University 
in my home country) too often and that grew into a problem in so far as 
package updates via my GUI of choice ("rkward") are now not possible anymore.[4]Do you know a way/ ways out?
I especially contact you because Kubuntu is a Debian flavour so that an answer (or hint) to the problem('s
resolution) presented in [3] could perhaps require knowledge that would exceed that of a "helping
hand's" abilities.Best regards,Markus Hofstetter

Default R Font Changed After Upgrade to Debian 8

Good day,

The server administrator recently upgraded the operating system from Debian version 7 to version 8 and R
from version 3.1.2 to version 3.2.2. The default font used in plots has changed and I've asked him to
restore the previous font. What instructions should I tell him about restoring the font ?

We are trying to setup the R Shiny Server using Ubuntu using
these<https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download-server/> instructions.
Unfortunately when we try to set up the repository to install r-studio into Ubuntu from the terminal the
url that we are using does not appear to be right. Here I where we are placing the url /etc/apt/sources.list
a and this is the actual URL deb http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/

Can you please advice on the correct way to make the setup, or the correct URL?

Issues starting RStudio Server and release file expiration under Debian (Jessie)

Hi! I am a new user of Debian and am having an issue loading RStudio Server, which may or may not be related to a
previous 'Release file expiration error' when trying to perform apt-get update prior to installing
r-base into my remote Debian system.

E: Release file for http://mirror.optus.net/debian/dists/jessie-updates/InRelease is expired
(invalid since 13d 17h 49min 2s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.

To work around the release file error I executed the following command which then allowed R to be installed:

$ sudo apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update

I then added this line to etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://cran.csiro.au/bin/linux/debian jessie-cran3/

Next I added the appropriate key, and performed the above command to update the system again so R could be reinstalled:

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 381BA480
$ sudo apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update
$ sudo apt-get install r-base

This gave me the newest version of R. I then installed RStudio, but when I attempted to access the server from
my browser it fails to load.

$ wget https://download2.rstudio.org/rstudio-server-0.99.489-amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi rstudio-server-0.99.489-amd64.deb

I have attempted to troubleshoot, but from my terminal everything seems to be okay:

debian <at> r-docs-debian2:~$ sudo rstudio-server verify-installation

Install R on Ubuntu with libcurl support


I'm install R from a package off of
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/. The install works fine
but it does not support libcurl as indicated by executing
"capabilities('libcurl')". As such, I cannot install packages from
HTTPS sources.

How can I install R from a package with libcurl support? Is this
possible or do I need to manually build R from source and compile it
with libcurl support directly.

Thanks for any help!
