Hi Duncan,
Thanks for your time.
Using ./configure as specified in the installation manual, I attempted to install R-2.13.0 but it reported an error message:

checking for IceConnectionNumber in -lICE... no checking X11/Intrinsic.h usability... no checking X11/Intrinsic.h presence... no
checking for X11/Intrinsic.h... no
configure: error: --with-x=yes (default) and X11 headers/libs are not

Could you please advise further. I am attempting this for the first time on my laptop (ubuntu os).
