There is not.  An one point there was a Motif version (graphapp, the 
toolkit used for RGui, used to have a Motif version), but it was 
incomplete (and unmaintainable).

There are several other consoles for R which work under X Windows.
Package gnomeGUI is one that used to be bundled in R, and for others see
http://www.sciviews.org/_rgui/.  [JGR is the one that is most frequently 
mentioned (but you will need working Java, which precludes my current 
x86_64 Linux platform).]
