I've just installed R on my OS X 10.9 and was trying to make
arrayQualityMetrics package work. I've installed it via the biocLite
Bioconductor script, and everything was apparently fine. But when I tried
to load the package, I've got an issue with the Cairo package...
Then I tried to load only Cairo:
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'Cairo', details:
call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
error: unable to load shared object
6): Library not loaded: /opt/X11/lib/libXrender.1.dylib
Reason: image not found
Error: package or namespace load failed for 'Cairo'
2: stop(gettextf("package or namespace load failed for %s",
call. = FALSE, domain = NA)
> Sorry, Simon. I should have suspected that it was a trivial problem. But there was an X11 app icon in Applications and I assumed it was installed, but was not. This mensgem only appeared when I clicked on such icon:

Yes, as you can see it says
"X11 is *no longer* included with OS X"
and it asks you if you want to know how to install it - if you continue, it will point you to a page that says that you have to download it from
