When I start the help system from within JGR, I get a page stating that I have some
Packages in /usr/local/lib/R/site-library and others in

The problem is while I can have access to the help info for the ones in /usr/local/lib/R/site-library, when I try to access any pages of the ones in /usr/lib/R/library (for example, base) I get an error:
/tmp/RtmpIwDHQD/.R/library/base/html/00Index.html (No such file or
with lots of lines suach are:

        at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method)

Actually, the same happens if I start R without JGR and use help.start(): I get a "file not found" at file:///tmp/RtmpxKozFe/.R/library/base/html/00Index.html if I select base,

while pages for rjava, for example, can be accessed on file:///tmp/RtmpxKozFe/.R/library/rJava.1/html/00Index.html

I'm using:

platform       i486-pc-linux-gnu
arch           i486
os             linux-gnu
system         i486, linux-gnu
major          2
minor          7.0
year           2008
month          04
day            22
svn rev        45424
language       R

version.string R version 2.7.0 (2008-04-22)

I'd appreciate your help.
