I am new to rstudio and rmarkdown. I am running R 4.0.0 from AUR on manjaro stable. In the last few weeks I installed tidyverse and a few other packages; rmarkdown seems to come with rstudio.
I updated all packages. Then when I try to knit I get these:
"Error: pandoc version 1.12.3 or higher is required and was not found (see the help page ?rmarkdown::pandoc_available)."
Installing package into ‘/home/joe/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/4.0’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘pandoc’ is not available (for R version 4.0.0)
It seems I am caught in a loop.
Is a new version of pandoc forthcoming?
In the meantime, how can I get around this? It is not clear to me how to revert R to an earlier version, and if so, which one would be compatible with the current other packages...
Any ideas on how to repair the installation so I can use rstudio projects and rmarkdown ?
