Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-07-02 13:01:17 UTC
Rgnome is not terribly bright. If there is no R_HOME value set, it will segfault
and crash. The resolution is to set R_HOME correctly:

R_HOME=/usr/lib/R /usr/lib/R/bin/exec/Rgnome

(or just globally set it with: export R_HOME=/usr/lib/R )

When I get a little more time, I'll try to fix it to behave a little more
sanely, but this should get it functioning for you.
