Bug Description

Binary package hint: rkward

Thanks for a wonderful GUI of R..Here is my problem: After I upgraded
( I do not remember which packages) the app is not working anymore. I
reinstalled, downgraded the app without any success.

This is the message after launched in a console:

/usr/bin/rkward.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
(I looked for the file in my file system and home and it is not present)


Ubuntu Hardy

This is not a bug, looks like you have messed up your system by mixing packages from our official repository and those from another repo (CRAN ?).
You should really not have a mixed R system, its the best recipe for this kind of problems, either stick fully to the hardy ones or to the ones from CRAN.

Changed in rkward:
status: New → Invalid

Even may be you are right, you answer doesn't help at all.
Here is how I solved my problem:
the library is located in
 but is named
next I copy the file in the same folder with the right name
sudo cp
make a symbolic link of this file and move to
 voila it is working
