If rstudio fails, then open a terminal window, and run the command:

echo "export RSTUDIO_WHICH_R=/usr/bin/R" >> ~/.bashrc

Then log out/in. If you don’t want to log out immediately, you may run the following command in every terminal window where you run rstudio:

source ~/.bashrc



email support@cirl.berkleley.edu to request additional packages. Alternatively, you may install packages in your home directory. For example, from the R command line:

> install.packages('package_name', dependencies=TRUE, repos='http://cran.rstudio.com/')
