Dear all,
I have installed R on Linux/Ubuntu 8.04. When I try to load the tcltk package, I get the response:

> library(tcltk)

Error in firstlib(which.lib.loc, package) :   Tcl/Tk support is not available on this system Error in library(tcltk) : . First.lib failed for 'tcltk'

In order to solve this problem, I try to: 1. To download the tcl and the tk packages (version: 8.5) from http://www.tcl.tk and to install them (the -dev packages also), but the error hold over.
2. To install the previous releases (version: 8.4) for these packages. The error hold over.
3. To set the environment variables 'TCL_LIBRARY' and 'TK_LIBRARY', in this mode:
TCL_LIBRARY=/usr/local/lib/tcl8.5 * (or 8.4)* TK_LIBRARY=/usr/lib/tk8.5 *(or 8.4)* but the error hold over.
4.Therefore, after this modifications, i uninstalled R and I installed again it. I try to do this both without setting environment variables and setting it. The error hold over.
I look for a solution.

Thank you
