R or X[Edgy]

The problem is not with R. It is with font path settings for X. The 
FontPath in /etc/X11/xorg.cong is not pointing to the correct 
directories. I changed the lines (following a lead from here: 

# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/cyrillic"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/Type1"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi"
# FontPath "/usr/share/X11/fonts/75dpi"

to these:

  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"
  FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"
and it started working. However, a proper fix should be done in order to 
set the font path correctly.
