tcl problem with R-3.6.3?

Charles Geyer
Just built 3.6.3 from source and tcl doesn't work.  Worked fine with the
same laptop in 3.6.2.  Here's the exact error.

blurfle$ R --vanilla

Re: tcl problem with R-3.6.3?

Henrik Bengtsson-5
Here's a simpler example that should reproduce that error for you:

  ans <- utils::select.list(c("hello", "world", "again"), graphics=TRUE)

Does it?

FYI, I installed R 3.6.3 from source on CentOS 7 a few hours ago, and
for me the above works just fine.

For your immediate needs of selecting a CRAN mirror, you can set:

options(menu.graphics = FALSE)

as a workaround to skip Tcl-based menus.

I knew I could work around.  But this shouldn't happen.

And yes.  Same problem with your example.

I didn't bother with sessionInfo() this time.  I presume it would be the
same as before.


AFAIK this is a fully up to date Ubuntu 18.04 box.

I assume   capabilities()    does show a   FALSE   for "tcltk" ?

Re: tcl problem with R-3.6.3?

Dirk Eddelbuettel
In reply to this post by Charles Geyer

Charles,

Did you try a build of the provided alpha, beta and rc releases made
available to allow you to ensure that the released version would build and
perform as expected?

FWIW the new 3.6.3 made ~ 12 hours ago are already available for Debian,
built for the Ubuntu backports at CRAN (thanks to Michael) and also in the
base Rocker container behaves as expected (and as the one RC build did):

edd@rob:~$ docker run --rm -ti rocker/r-base

Type 'contributors()' for more information and

Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or
'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help.
Type 'q()' to quit R.

And (to echo Martin Maechler) tcltk comes up as TRUE as it should.

Re: tcl problem with R-3.6.3?

Charles Geyer
No. I didn't do any of that and am now at a hockey game.  But since I can't
reproduce the problem after an Ubuntu online update and reboot, I assume
the issue is moot.  But I will check these things in an hour or so.

Re: tcl problem with R-3.6.3?

Charles Geyer
I realized I don't have to do those checks.  It was not working again (same
error) message when I got home, but after a reboot it worked fine.  Of
course it has tcl/tk because when it works, it brings up a gui chooser
thingy that allows me to choose a CRAN mirror.
