Hello Miklos,
Do you have the "build-essential" package installed in Ubuntu? If not try installing it, as it will install the basic tools needed for compiling things from source. Also as Iain pointed out run R with "sudo R" from the terminal if you want to install packages for all users i.e to usr/lib/R/library.

BR,
Matti
