After downloading RStudio-1.1.423.dmg into my ~/Downloads directory on my macbook air (macOS 10.13), I tried opening it. I was hoping that would be all I’d need, but it did not open anything.
Then I used hdiutil as follows :
hdiutil attach RStudio-1.1.423.dmg
This created the folder /Volumes/RStudio-1.1.423, with the following content:
lrwxr-xr-x 1 sdas staff 13 Feb 2 01:53 Applications -> /Applications
drwxr-xr-x 3 sdas staff 102 Feb 2 01:52 RStudio.app
Now I cannot figure out how to open the studio. I tried “open -a RStudio” command, but got the following error:
Unable to find application named ‘RStudio’
I am not an expert on macOS or R. Just trying to learn. Not sure why I am unable to get RStudio to start. I’ll appreciate any advice.
