Re: [R] package update

ok, how do I do root permissions from the RStudio GUI ? What is the specific command that allows me to do that when I type ...update.packages() ?

Also, why are the packages installing in the first place if I can't write to that location ?

Currently running linux ubuntu 10.04 by the way.
