  1. lme4 is a *package*, not a library
  2. a function lme() is not part of recent versions of lme4. You told us you are using an ancient version of R, but nothing about the version of lme4 (which is porbably outdated as well, since new versions won't work on such an ancient version of R, I believe).
  3. Why do you conceal the error message of lmer()? Please read the posting guide and send information that is helpful for the helpers to help.
