Installing Rstudio server with R installed in non-default location?


#1

My R is installed in a non-default location:

[hussaif1@z99 build]$ which R
/Apps/software/R/R-3.5.1/bin/R

Is there any way to install Rstudio using this R installation? This is the error I get when I run cmake:

[hussaif1@z99 build]$ cmake .. -DRSTUDIO_TARGET=Server -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/Apps/users/hussaif1/r_studio/rstudio-rstudio-6979d6d/exe

#2

I would assume many folks have R installed in a shared filesystem. So I would hope there is some way to use R Studio server when R is not installed in default system locations.


#3

I was able to figure this out by completing uninstalling the old R in /usr/bin. I also had to manually remove the /usr/lib64/R folder .
