Dear List, I am running R 2.3.1 on a Power Mac G5 with MAC OS 10.4.7 installed. I am running R from the Cocoa GUI. I tried using the package arrayQuality with the swirl zebrafish data, as outlined in the marray Quick start guide. I received the following error as I was working along: > maQualityPlots(mraw) Error in X11(paste("png::", filename, sep = ""), width, height, pointsize, : unable to start device PNG In addition: Warning message: unable to open connection to X11 display '' So I tried: > maQualityPlots(mraw,dev="jpeg") Error in X11(paste("jpeg::", quality, ":", filename, sep = ""), width, : unable to start device JPEG In addition: Warning message: unable to open connection to X11 display '' > maQualityPlots(mraw,dev="ps") [1] "Format error, format will be set to PNG" Error in X11(paste("png::", filename, sep = ""), width, height, pointsize, : unable to start device PNG In addition: Warning message: unable to open connection to X11 display '' > maQualityPlots(mraw,dev="quartz") [1] "Format error, format will be set to PNG" Error in X11(paste("png::", filename, sep = ""), width, height, pointsize, : unable to start device PNG In addition: Warning message: unable to open connection to X11 display '' > Other graphics, like image() and plot(), run just fine. Incidentally, I tried running maQualityPlots using my X11 version of R, and the option dev="jpeg". I got the plots that I wanted. The function also ran with the default device (png), but my Mac could not open the files when I tried to display them. So, I have the devices on my computer ( at least, I have jpeg - but I'd like png, too. I think the quality would be better), but the GUI interface cannot find it. How do I get the correct device installed on my Mac and get the GUI to recognize it?

Have you installed the X11.app from the tiger/panther installation disks? The X11.app needs to be running in conjunction with R to then access the X11 graphics.
