I believe R needs to be compiled with tcltk support for the package to work. Do you compile your own version or use a package manager (e.g., on Ubuntu)? If you have TCL/TK installed in a "standard" location, all should be well I think.


On my Ubuntu machine, I have both the "tcl" and the "tk" packages installed through Synaptic (the package manager).
