Hi Community,

here is the problem, Linux problem (reported to work on Windows). I need to generate graphical output in any of bitmap format under the 'R CMD BATCH'. Whereas the script generating png-s works perfectly in the R session, such things as X11, png and jpeg are not usable in BATCH (they cannot be switched on by --gui-X11 etc) and X11 is prompted to be required for png. At the same time, such things as postscript and pdf, which are generally X-independent work fine. The problem is that as a result I need something previewable in the web browser: png, jpeg. Any suggestions how to proceed? Generally I could use command line linux tools to convert from almost any bitmpa format to the required png or jpeg, but it would be nicer to have them as direct R output.

Kind regards
