It still works for me as this cut&pasted session log from ESS shows:

but I'd also be the first to tell you that I (as the maintainer of these Debian packages) kept the versions frozen as I had difficulties building the newer ggobi and/or Rggobi versions (and possible combinations, been a while I since I tried last):

edd@basebud:~> COLUMNS=120 dpkg -l "*ggobi*" | cut -c -80 Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold

| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name                     Version                  Description
ii  ggobi                    0.99.10-3                Data visualization syste
ii  r-omegahat-ggobi         0.53.0-4                 GNU R package for the GG

Sources for these are on any Debian mirror and possibly also still on Can't recall if we needed patches; if so they also be on the Debian mirrors.

Hope this helps, Dirk

If your hair is standing up, then you are in extreme danger.
