Brian,

I assume what you meant was that you did not see an icon on the desktop like in windows. Well, R does not have a GUI under linux, and you need to open a terminal and type "R" to get started. But you can install either JGR, Rcommander, or PMG if you really want a GUI. For me, Emacs + ESS + R works best.

Best,
Shige
