Hello all,

I have been a R user for about a year now, running on a MS Windows machine. I am in the process of making a complete switch to open-source. Linux is a new world to me. Ubuntu was my selection of the various distributions. Please pardon this very basic question (I was unable to locate an answer on R or Ubuntu). I used Synaptic to download the necessary files to run. However, I was unable to locate the program using the Add/Remove feature. So, I created a Launcher for R on the desktop and identified the executable file. The path I entered into the Command Line was: /usr/bin/R I can run R in the Terminal, but not as a separate desktop location. So, the short question is, what is the specific command line or configuration I should be using to run R? Or, am I supposed to be running R in the Terminal?

Thanks in advance,
Brian
