Hello, all

I am trying to install RGTK2 on my Ubuntu 7.04 system. The installation fails with a message that RGtk2 requires GTK 2.8. As far as I can tell I have GTK+ 2.10.11 installed. Can anyone suggest a way to proceed?

Thanks very much.

Here is the failed installation:

> install.packages("RGtk2")
Warning in install.packages("RGtk2") : argument 'lib' is missing: using /usr/local/lib/R/site-library
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done

The downloaded packages are in

        /tmp/RtmpTMtchC/downloaded_packages Warning message:
installation of package 'RGtk2' had non-zero exit status in: install.packages("RGtk2")

I am using R version 2.4.1 (2006-12-18) on a Ubuntu 7.04 system
