Dear R Forum,

I have R installed on a SUSE Linux server. The version of R is 3.2.4
Revised. I have been trying to install R commander on the server to provide
a GUI for code development, however when I come to install Rcmdr via


I have a series of non-zero exit status messages for several packages,
including tcltk2. After a little digging round, it seems that tcltk is not
available to my R install.

Now if I offer the command capabilities inside R I am then told that tcltk

However the zypper in tk tcl command, says that tk and tcl are both
installed and are present in the Linux install.

My question is this: how do I make both tk and tcl available to R so that I
can download and install the R commander package?

Many thanks as always for the R communities time

Mike Griffiths
