A Debian user filed a bug report the details of which are at


I can replicate his problem: the R/Gnome entry that is made available to the various window managers fails. A window pops, and exists.

As far as I can tell, the menuing system does not have a problem with shell script wrapper. Environment variables like PATH, DISPLAY etc should be set too. So the best idea I am having now is that R _may_ think that interactive() is FALSE when it should in fact be TRUE.

Does anybody have a) other ideas, and fixes, or b) an idea how I could correct the menuing system?


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
