Rattle: Installation on GNU/Linux

See Ubuntu Install for specific instructions for a quick Ubuntu install.

Quick Start

Dev Release

The latest development version is available directly from Togaware:
> install.packages("rattle", repos="http://rattle.togaware.com")


Under Debian, Ubuntu, Red Hat and Suse both 32bit and 64bit variants are supported.

Below we illustrate the installation on Ubuntu. See CRAN for details.

A common issue is the need to install the GTK development packages so that R can compile the required packages. On Ubuntu or Debian do this first:
$ sudo apt-get install wajig
$ wajig install libgtk2.0-dev libxml2-dev


1. Install Latest R

We first add the appropriate CRAN repository to the Ubuntu list of repositories. From the command line (and we can also do this through the Software Centre GUI):

$ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list natty
deb http://cran.rstudio.org/bin/linux/ubuntu saucy/

The archive is signed to ensure its integrity. We add the signature to our system:

$ gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key E084DAB9
$ gpg -a --export E084DAB9 | sudo apt-key add -

We can then install the r-recommended and r-base-dev package, which will also pull in a number of other packages.

$ wajig update
$ wajig install r-recommended r-base-dev

We install the dev version so we can install other packages from source.

This will install r-base-core_3.0.2-1saucy_amd64.deb [131223].

2. Install Rattle

We now install Rattle using R's package manager to do so. Open up a Terminal (from the Accessories menu under Applications) and start up R.

$ R

Then install the Rattle package:

> install.packages("rattle")
We can then run Rattle:
> library(rattle)
> rattle()
