Hi John, Alex and Ingo,

Thanks for catching this question. I'd missed Ingo's original email.

Rcmdr does need X.11 and Tcl/Tk, although it uses the versions that come with Mac OS 10.4. Hence, as Alex indicates, there is no need to separately install these.

Ingo, if you can't get it to work using John's link, let me know where you get stuck. R-Sig-Mac is an alias dedicated to Mac OS specific questions.

Regards,
Rob
