Linux 🐧 RStudio Startup Blank Page

Due to quite some duplicated setting files and make me confused when configure setting on startup::startup() (noticed that the startup codes will colorised if open R via Linux console, but direct open with Rconsole won't), wonder which R follow which setting files:

:~$ ls /etc/R/
ldpaths  Makeconf  Renviron  Renviron.site  repositories  Rprofile.site
:~$ ls /usr/share/R/share/R/
examples-footer.R  examples-header.R  nspackloader.R  REMOVE.R  tests-startup.R
:~$ ls /lib/R/etc/
javaconf  ldpaths.new  Makeconf.new  Renviron.orig  Renviron.ucf  Rprofile.site
ldpaths   Makeconf     Renviron      Renviron.site  repositories

and then try to united the library(set to be only library) as below (since normally the packages will install to different directories and make me confused, windows normally only install in program files):

> # c("/usr/lib/R/library", "/lib/R/library/")
> .libPaths()
[1] "/usr/lib/R/library"

Below are some reference, wonder if configure the setting on only file ~/.Rprofile and ~/.Renviron with User-level will do?


When I configured above setting, RStudio startup became blank page.

Continuing the discussion from Rstudio opens to a blank white screen:

:~$ # Linux
:~$ export RSTUDIO_CHROMIUM_ARGUMENTS="--disable-gpu"
:~$ /usr/lib/rstudio/bin/rstudio

:~$ # Linux
:~$ sudo micro ~/.config/RStudio/desktop.ini  # $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/RStudio/desktop.ini

and then modify desktop.renderingEngine=software as below, Ctrl + S and Ctrl + Q (saved and exit).

RStudio startup blank page and try to refer above but disabled gpu doesn't help.

There has another article RStudio Desktop IDE Will Not Start to refer.


Reference:

  1. Blank screen when opening RStudio
  2. R Studio opens as black screen and doesn't work

Continuing the discussion from Error : Error Starting R:

Just recalled faced same error few months ago, rprofile r package doesn't support packages installations.

  1. usethis::edit_r_profile()
  2. copy the rprofileas a draft and remove the content in ./Renviron
  3. install the r packages in rprofile scripts and copy and paste back the content into ~/.Renviron and run the R.
  4. R and RStudio working now
  • amment the on ~/.Renvironand ~/.Rprofile but not /etc/R/Rprofile.site, /etc/R/Renviron,/etc/R/Renviron.site.
  • set the path R_LIBS_USER=${R_LIBS_USER-'/usr/lib/R/library'} in /usr/lib/R/etc/Renviron.orig

Only repo GitHub - scibrokes/owner: Personal CV facing error as time being but not other repos, normally when specific project caused startup blank page error, try to switch to no project and setwd() set the path the that project for github fetch (pull/push).


remarks: just wonder why rprofile and startup::startup() became slower, take dozen of seconds but not start on spot without delay as usual.

Continuing the discussion from GitHub SSH doesn't work:

You can only push to two types of URL addresses:

source: About remote repositories - GitHub Docs

Referred to above link and works (Noted, HTTPS URL required tokens but SSH URL properties won't).

$ git remote set-url origin git@github.com:scibrokes/owner.git and repo GitHub - scibrokes/owner: Personal CV working smoothly on RStudio now.
