I recently had a similar problem on my computer. I don't know whether you installed R from source code yourself or used some pre-compiled package for SuSE. One potential reason for your error might be that tcltk has not been installed.
Please check Section A.2.1 of the R Installation and Administration Manual. It helped me in this case (add configuration options, e.g. --with-tcltk).

I hope this helps,
