Is anyone else having trouble with installing rJava on Linux Mint under R 3.5?
I managed to work around troubles in Bunsenlabs Deuterium (Debian Jessie), but
it uses older libraries (openjdk-7).
Please contact off-list and I will post information when solution understood,
as, looking on the net, there seem to be a lot of people with suggestions
that don't work, or work only in some environments.
Answering my own post. On the particular machine in question, I managed to install rJava after installing
(in the OS) libbz2-dev and liblzma-dev. There was a hint of this in the install output,
but not as clear as would help a novice.
