The following example shows how to install and configure R on a Linux machine.

> wget 
> tar xzf R-2.6.2.tar.gz
> cd R-2.6.2
> ./configure
> make
> make install

Additional Notes

  • These instructions install R under /usr/local (with the executable installed at /usr/local/bin/R
  • Support for the X11 device (including png() and jpeg()) is compiled in R by default.
  • In order to use the X11, png and jpeg devices, an Xdisplay must be available. Thus you may still need to Configure the Virtual Frame Buffer on Linux.
