package installation

R help mailing list-2
Hi, When installing packages is there any preferable path.
In my case I got this message in R consol:The downloaded binary packages are in         C: ~\ Temp \ RtmpQLTD5e \ downloaded_packages
this is a temporary files that I delete every time.
Is it possible to install packages in a specefic folder.
        [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Re: package installation

PIKAL Petr
Hi

If you installed through install.packages you could specify lib

see help page

lib
character vector giving the library directories where to install the packages. Recycled as needed. If missing, defaults to the first element of .libPaths().

But I believe you hardly need to do it. You probably do not know how to handle different locations for different packages and if you scatter packages within your computer you could have problems with invoking them.

Cheers
Petr

Re: package installation

In reply to this post by R help mailing list-2
There is the directory that the compressed file gets downloaded (Temp), and there is another directory where the the extracted files are "installed" ("library"). You can read all about this in the "R Administration and Installation Manual" that comes with R.
The message about the download directory occurs when the library cannot be written to. I am aware of two issues that can interfere with that step on Windows:

A) You have multiple copies of R open on Windows with existing packages open. Install packages with only one copy of R open.

B) You ran R or the setup program with Administrator privileges at some point, and some or all of the packages in your user library (usually C:\Users\Yourname\Documents\R\win-library) have abnormal permissions. Cleaning up such a mess usually involves using Administrator privileges to completely remove C:\Users\Yourname\Documents\R\ and then starting R and installing all your packages again.
