Hi I am having an issue installing the flow cytometry package flowClust on my Ubuntu 14 system.

Other packages such as SamSPECTRAL install fine.

I get this error at the end of the install process which may help:

Can anyone help me. I'm very new to R and its packages. I do all my work in R Studio.

Thanks in advance

Please include the complete output of the commands you are using to install flowClust (including the commands themselves) and the output of the sessionInfo() command. You can edit your existing post.

You error message indicates that 'MCMCpack' package is not installed properly.

Hi Mike, thanks for your response. Would you have any suggestions as to how i can go about remedying this? Gareth

Run `install.packages("MCMCpack")` and make sure it is successful without errors. Then `biocLite("flowClust")`
