I just did a fresh install of R 2.0.1 on my Powerbook 867 running a fresh 10.3.7 install. The R installation went fine. I then tried installing the Bioconductor packages. When I tried to install widgetTools, I got a tcl/tk error. And when I tried library(tcltk) , I got: Error in fun(...) : Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories: /usr/local/lib/tcl8.4 /usr/local/lib/tcl8.4 This probably means that Tcl wasn't installed properly. Error: .onLoad failed in loadNamespace for 'tcltk' Error in library(tcltk) : package/namespace load failed for 'tcltk' So, I downloaded a fresh distribution of Tcl/Tk (TclTkAquaBI-8.4.9.0.dmg) and installed it. I copied the init.tcl library to /usr/local/lib/tcl8.4 (which I had to create). Then I tried again: library(tcltk) and got Error in fun(...) : this isn't a Tk applicationcouldn't connect to display ":0" Error: .onLoad failed in loadNamespace for 'tcltk' Error in library(tcltk) : package/namespace load failed for 'tcltk' I also have downloaded the most recent xcode and XDarwin. But this has not helped. If anyone has this working on Mac OS X with R 2.0.1, please enlighten me. Thanks. Sam [[alternative text/enriched version deleted]]

You might find that you will get better help if you ask questions about failures of your R installation on the R help list. Did you rebuild/reinstall the tcltk package after you updated the tcl/tk libraries (if not then you should). But really your R installation seems to have failed and careful reading of the R INSTALLATION guide and FAQ for OS X should reveal the causes.

Hi, you should install the tcltk (apple) package that comes with the R for Mac OS X installer. In the R for Mac OS X Faq it is written that you need to have a copy of X11-tcltk to run tcltk R package. the AquaTclTk is not compatible at the moment with the R GUI. So 1. install (X11)tcltk that comes with the installer 2. run R 3. run the X11 windows server (either from the R toolbar or from your Applications folder) 4. library(tcltk) as for 3. : in some cases X11 window server is not installed on your hard disk, but you can find it in the install CDs of Mac OS X in all distributions of OS X 10.3 stefano On Jan 15, 2005, at 3:43 AM, Sam Volchenboum wrote: > I just did a fresh install of R 2.0.1 on my Powerbook 867 running a > fresh 10.3.7 install.
