No, gtkDevice is deprecated as is the old R GUI for Gtk v1. That's why I asked for it to be removed from Debian.

You are much better off with the newer, better, fancier, ... RGtk2 and its cousin cairoDevice. I maintain both as a Debian package, and Ubuntu appears to have versions 2.8.5 + 1.0.0 (a little behind Debian) in the universe repo too. So apt-get install away, or rebuild from CRAN sources.


Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
