Fresh R Installation On Linux

Kevin Feasel



Marcelo Perlin has a script to install R on Linux:

Since I formatted all my three computers (home/laptop/work), I wrote a small bash file to automate the process of installing R and its dependencies. I use lots of R packages in a daily basis. For some of them, it is required to install dependencies using the terminal. Each time that a install.package() failed, I saved the name of the required software and added it to the bash file. While my bash file will not cover all dependencies for all packages, it will suffice for a great proportion.

Another option might be to grab a Docker image.
