ERROR installing ggbiplot


#2

It could mean rlang was loaded when you tried this new installation and something went wrong. You could

  1. Start a new clean session
  2. Install rlang from CRAN again
  3. Restart you session to get a clean one again
  4. install ggbiplot from Github

You have several questions like that on the community that you could be inspired from

Thanks cderv,
Ive tried the steps you suggested, and got another ERROR:

Can you help?

#4

Can you confirm if you are working in a packrat project ?
I see packrat in the path to the :package: but not inside a project, but directly inside Documents. Usually, it is inside a project not user Home.


#5

hm. No idea what packrat is. I just put everything in documents. Would organizing my stuff and using packtrat solve the ERROR?


#6

For some reason your packages are installing into a packrat librairie and not your user library. Outside of a project , I don’t think this is a good idea.

When you open a clean R session in rstudio, what is the result of ˋ.Libpaths()` ?

Your are using packrat without knowing , not the best thing I think. We’ll see how to undo that.

And you definitely use Rstudio project for your work!
Look at this for a start


#7

Thanks a lot, much appreciated. I have reading to do :slight_smile:
cheers


#8

Hello! Following the book chapter 8, I have created projects and organized my files. Much better.

When I open Rstudio, there is a packrat ERROR

#9

Same Libpath error in Documents.

I understand I need to specify the library location when I install it. Ill try it.


#10

Do you have a .Rprofile in you project or home directory ?
Packrat create one that tries to source a packrat/init.R that should not exist anymore (hence the error)
Can you check if it exists and what is inside ?

Also, the call is .libPaths(). Sorry I had the wrong upper letter.


#11
> .libPaths()
[1] "C:/Users/Agathe/Documents/R/win-library/3.5" "C:/Program Files/R/R-3.5.1/library"

#12

yes. There is a file ".Rprofile" in Documents. Where everything was before I made Projects. I dont know how to open it?


#13

Thats it:

#### -- Packrat Autoloader (version 0.5.0) -- ####
source("packrat/init.R")
#### -- End Packrat Autoloader -- ####

#14

What should I do with packrat -uninstall, or learn what it is and use it? I get this ERROR message when I start R:

Error in file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) : 
  cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning message:
In file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) :
  cannot open file 'packrat/init.R': No such file or directory

And, does it have something to do with my first problem installing ggbiplot?

Thanks a lot


#15

ok so now your .libPaths() points to the standard user library. If you can't open the project, you can delete the lines

#### -- Packrat Autoloader (version 0.5.0) -- ####
source("packrat/init.R")
#### -- End Packrat Autoloader -- ####

so that does not try to load the init file.

You have to retry to install your :package: in a clean session. Have you tried already ?


#16

Hi,

Thanks for your help -Much appreciated!
I really want to learn this, and every little thing is an obstacle. :frowning:

  1. I open my project in a new session and the packrat error appears. I dont know where are the lines that you recommend to delete?

How to fix that new error?


#17

The file is definitely there and R sees it. For example:

> list.files()
[1] "LA-N1_ITRAX.txt" "PCA.R"           "PCA.Rproj"       "stats.R"        
> #load data
> ITRAX <- read.delim("~/LA-N1_ITRAX.txt")
Error in file(file, "rt") : cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning message:
In file(file, "rt") :

#18

Where is your file relatively to your project ? From the result of list.files can you try

ITRAX <- read.delim("LA-N1_ITRAX.txt")

?

Do you still have a Rprofile file somewhere ?
Can you see by calling usethis::edit_r_profile() and usethis::edit_r_profile("project") ?

Do you have something written in those file ?

Do you have one is ~/.Rprofile too ?

There is definitely something off with packrat initialization somewhere in your configuration files.


#19

Thanks! It works without ~/. I can load data.

RProfile is still in the folder Documents.

From one of my project, I tried what you suggested:

> usethis::edit_r_profile("project")
✔ Setting active project to 'C:/Users/Agathe/Documents/DTW'
● Modify '.Rprofile'
● Restart R for changes to take effect

There is nothing in this Rprofile. I think it just created a new RProfile file in this project.

Now this:

> usethis::edit_r_profile() 
● Modify 'C:/Users/Agathe/Documents/.Rprofile'
● Restart R for changes to take effect

I can see the RProfile code:

#### -- Packrat Autoloader (version 0.5.0) -- ####
source("packrat/init.R")
#### -- End Packrat Autoloader -- ####

I delete it and restart R.

Problem solved. No more packrat error. Thanks :smiley:


#20

Good news! ggbiplot works like a charm.
Problem solved.

Merci cderv, you rock!
