Re: [R] Where is the tcltk package?

In view of various bits of advice I've received I tried:

(1) sudo apt-get install r-base r-base-dev

The result:

> Reading package lists... Done

No improvement in the situation; capabilities("tcltk") still returns FALSE.

(2) re-installing R from source, first doing

     ./configure --with-tcltk

Again no improvement; capabilities("tcltk") still returns FALSE.

WTF? Why do these things always happen to ***me***? :-)
