I've been using R and R commander (Rcmdr) for some years, never had
problems. I'm on Xubuntu 16.04. Yesterday I updated R from 3.4.4 to 3.6.1
and all sorts of problems occurred. Firstly I completely removed R from my
system, including old directories (with some hiccups, I must admit). Then I
installed R and R-dev without issues. Had some issues installing Rcmdr, but
in the end I met all the requirements and installed all the requested
packages, including rgl and a few others that were requested upon first
launching Rcmdr. After that, no more error messages. However, whenever I
launch R commander I get these lines, which don't mention any problem, but
the GUI won't launch.

See ?effectsTheme for details.
After seeing, if I type library(Rcmdr) again, nothing happens.
I installed Hmisc, leaps and aplpack, as these were indicated as possible
solutions, but to no avail.
This is the output of sys.info and sessionInfo
