Dear All,
I have never had this problem before. I run debian testing on my box
and I have recently update my R environment.
Now, see what happens when I try the most trivial of all plots

> plot(seq(22))
Error in (function (display = "", width, height, pointsize, gamma, bg,
  X11 module cannot be loaded
  In addition: Warning message:
  In (function (display = "", width, height, pointsize, gamma, bg,  :
    unable to load shared object '/usr/lib/R/modules//R_X11.so':
      /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpng12.so.0: version `PNG12_0' not
      found (required by /usr/lib/R/modules//R_X11.so)

and this is my sessionInfo()
