The following shiny app gives an error if there is no library(plotly):

# This line has to be uncommented, otherwise the error appears
# library(plotly)

# Define UI for application:
ui <- shiny::fixedPage(plotly::plotlyOutput("distPlot"))

# Define server logic:
server <- function(input, output) {
   output$distPlot <- plotly::renderPlotly({
      plotly::plot_ly(x = 1:10, y = 11:20,
                      type = "scatter", mode = "lines")

# Run the application 
shiny::shinyApp(ui = ui, server = server)


It seems the error is caused by call("ggplotly",...), but I don't know how to fix it.
