Execute R commands in R environment with gnome-terminal

I would like a shell script that launches a new terminal, opens the R environment in the terminal and executes commands in the R environment of the new terminal.

I found a similar Q in the below link,

[In order : launch new terminal, launch R environment in the new terminal, execute commands in R environment]


But the solution discussed in the thread (Rscript) doesn't work for me.

I'm trying to run the below code,

gnome-terminal -- /bin/sh -c 'R;Sys.getenv("PATH")'

But I'm getting an error when I use (Sys.getenv("PATH")) after R command. I guess it is due to /bin/sh.

gnome-terminal -- /bin/sh -c 'R' 

When I run the above code, it opens another terminal and invokes R environment successfully.

Can someone advise how to execute multiple R commands in gnome-terminal.

Use Rscript


How to use R script to just get Path inside the R environment

I tried your code,

sgpengcs001:sviswan1:132 > /bin/sh -c 'R;Sys.getenv("PATH");'
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `"PATH"'
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `R;Sys.getenv("PATH");'
