[R] Question about graphical UI running R version 2.7.0 (2008-04-22) on Ubuntu Hardy Heron...

Hi All:

Tried out a couple of different options suggested earlier, but for some reason I can only get Rcmdr to work properly. Not that that's a problem, but it might have been nice to have a couple of other choices.

Just tried out JGR and ended up getting not found errors on several of the menu choices. Installed OK. Just several key menu options such as package manager don't work. Have I possibly missed something in my setup, or has the cat some catching up to do to be compatible?

Interested in considering sci-views, but I get the impression from their site that it is a windows only choice. On the mark, or have I missed something?

Accepting the point that I'm an oddity for preferring an R GUI rather than the CLI in Linux, can anybody out there who has dabbled with (or used regularly) these two possibles advise on whether or not they are worth fussing with on the recent issue of Ubuntu? Or should I just accept that Rcmdr is a working option, shut up, and leave well enough alone?
