Hello,

To obtain the latest R packages, add an entry like:

deb http://my.favorite.cran.mirror/bin/linux/ubuntu feisty/

in your /etc/apt/sources.list file ::
* First open a terminal (Applications - Accessories - terminal).

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

You will need to give your user password (this assumes you are a user with root privileges) and then the file will load in the editor "gedit".

Save the file and exit gedit

To install the complete R system, use

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install r-base

Users who need to compile packages should also install the r-base-dev package:

sudo apt-get install r-base-dev

After that, you start R from the terminal by typing (capital! Linux is case sensitive!)

R

Now, the terminal prompt changes into the R prompt >. If you now type

demo(graphics)

and the graphics demo runs as expected, you are pretty much sure that your installation is OK.

After this procedure, your R installation will eventually be updated automatically through Ubuntu's update manager.

Best Regards,

Adnen CHOCKRI
