Dear Daniel,

I'm not a Debian user, but your description of what you did makes me wonder whether (1) you ever loaded the Rcmdr package, and (2) whether you installed its dependencies. After starting up R, you can load (and start) the R commander via the command library(Rcmdr). Prior to that, you should be able to install the Rcmdr package along with its dependencies from within R via the command install.packages("Rcmdr", dependencies=TRUE).

Finally, if you haven't already done so, you'd probably save yourself some time and trouble by reading the "Introduction to R" manual that ships with R.

I hope this helps,
 John
