I am having the exact problem as multiple users before me. Whenever I try to change the preferences in R Studio I get "Error: Permission denied".
I have tried to reinstall R and R Studio multiple times, but unfortunately this does not work.
In this thread, the user found a solution by "giving permission into the .config directory under my sudo user".
However, I don't know how to do this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
