Cannot Open Project in New Session

bug

#1

The alternative “Open Project in New Session…” from the File menu does not work for me anymore. Nothing happens. I have tried it on two different machines and it works on neither. Possible bug?

> sessionInfo()
R version 3.4.1 (2017-06-30)
Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)
Running under: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

Are you using RStudio Desktop or Server? Which version?


#3

This has been a known bug in the builds for Ubuntu Xenial. We’ve just released a new preview this morning (1.1.379) which has a fix; would you be willing to give it a go and let us know if it makes things better for you?
