Error in installing phenoptr package

I want to use RStudio for image analysis using the phenoptr package. However after installing R, Rtools and RStudio I use:
which seems to work just fine. When then trying to get the phenoptr package:
it teels me:
Error: .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'pkgload', details:
call: NULL
error: package ‘backports’ does not have a namespace

I am completely new to R, however I need the analysis badly. I tried restarting, reinstalling, etc. but nothing worked so far. Any hint I got from googling this error did not work.

Is there anybody who can tell me what I am doing wrong?

Tank you!


Hi and welcome! Looks like you're on the right track. Try installing backports: install.packages("backports") and then rerun the install_github() line.

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with this package. What add-ins are you expecting to see? In a quick look at the the phenoptr website, I don't see a mention of add-ins.

Thanks a lot! The installation worked now:

  • DONE (phenoptr)
    However I cannot see the Addin in the addin window. Also not after restarting rstudio or force reinstalling the phenoptr package. Any idea?
