Problem with IRkernel Installation Solved - Instructions on how to Solve it

PaulJr
Dear friends,

Great news! I was able to install the IRkernel successfully and I am now
able to create R notebooks in Jupyter. Just in case anybody out there is
struggling with this too, here is what I did (I have Windows 8, but it will
probably work for Mac OS X as well):

1-Go to the page https://irkernel.github.io/installation
2-Open the R console (I have R version 3.3.2)
3-Go to the step where it says "Installing via supplied binary packages
(default on Windows + Mac OS X)
4-Instead of installing all the packages using one single command as
suggested in the installation instructions, go to the R console and install
all of the packages one by one, as follows
 >install.packages('repr')
 >install.packages('IRdisplay')
 >install.packages('evaluate')
 >install.packages('crayon')
 >install.packages('pbdZMQ')
 >install.packages('devtools')
 >install.packages('uuid')
 >install.packages('digest')
5-Connect to a CRAN mirror and select install packages, look for the
package githubinstall and clic on it to install it
6-Start loading each one of the packages installed like this:
 >library("repr")
 >library("IRdisplay")
 >library("evaluate")
 >library("crayon")
 >library("pbdZMQ")
 >library("devtools")
 >library("uuid")
 >library("digest")
 >library("githubinstall")
7-After this you have to update jsonlite which is a dependencie of package
githubinstall, you update jsonlite using the following command:
 >update.packages('jsonlite')
8-After this, you have to type the following commands:
 >library(httr)
 >set_config(use_proxy(url="the required IP", port=8080, username="your
network user", password="the password you use to unlock your computer"))
 >#you can get the required IP going to the command prompt and using the
command ping
 >#port has to be 8080
9-type use the command:
 >devtools::install_github('IRkernel/IRkernel')
10-Last but not least, type the following command:
 >IRkernel::installspec()

If you follow this instructions you should be able to install the IRkernel
successfully and start writing R notebooks in Jupyter.

Hope this helps,

This can hardly make any difference.

install.packages(c('repr', 'IRdisplay', 'evaluate', 'crayon',
'pbdZMQ', 'devtools', 'uuid', 'digest'))

is fine.

Why?

Attaching all these packages is not needed. The githubinstall package
is not needed at all.

Also not needed, as githubinstall is not needed.

Maybe something like this is needed if you are behind a firewall, I
don't know. But none of that is generally needed.

I suspect it will confuse more than help unfortunately.

Best,

Ista,

If you do not appreciate it or do not find it useful, just discard the
message. I tried several things and this is what worked for me. If you have
another solution or a better solution let me know.

Regards,

Paul

It's not about me. My concern is for the people you potentially send on a
wild goose chase when all they really need to do is follow the IRkernel
documentation.

I tried several things and this is what worked for me. If you have another
solution or a better solution let me know.


A better solution is to follow the IRkernel installation instructions. If
it doesn't work ask for help by describing exactly what you did and exactly
what happened.

Best,
Ista
