Hello I'm trying to use the Magick package for animations - it has

downloaded OK but says that it was built under version 4.0.5 and that

fontconfig and x11 features are disabled. Atm I am using R 1.4.1103 Am I

being naive in assuming that all later versions of R subsume the features

of earlier ones or is it that some packages stop being useable with later

updates?

In any event I have some code for an animation sequence which I have

downloaded from the site -Lesson 39 – Discrete distributions in R: Part I –

dataanalysisclassroom <

https://www.dataanalysisclassroom.com/lesson39/>

the code runs without an error message but it doesn't give the animation

sequence you see on the website

Any help suggestions appreciated Nick Wray
