GTK on Windows
Clone this wiki locally
msGUI's graphical interface requires the GTK+ graphical libraries and a few R packages that allow R to use these libraries. If you use GTK-based software, such as GIMP, the components will already be installed on your system and you can jump straight to step 3. If you don't have GTK+ or are unsure, proceed to step 1.
- Download the latest GTK libraries from http://gtk-win.sourceforge.net/home/index.php/Main/Downloads. The file you need is called gtk2-runtime- version - some recent date -ash.exe.
- Run the downloaded file to install the libraries.
Now for the R part. Open R and run
install.packages("gWidgetsRGtk2", dep = TRUE). This should install all required dependencies in one go (requires proper writing permissions).
In case the one liner fails,
gWidgetsRGtk2can be installed on by one in this specific order.
