R Studio not running Rcmdr


Hi everyone,

I’m a new user to R Studio. I’ve analyzed two projects with R Commander and have enjoyed its interface. Suddenly library(Rcmdr) will no longer load fully. Specifically:

> library(Rcmdr)
Loading required package: splines
Loading required package: RcmdrMisc
Loading required package: car
Loading required package: sandwich

Attaching package: ‘RcmdrMisc’

The following object is masked from ‘package:Hmisc’:


Loading required package: effects
Loading required package: carData

Attaching package: ‘carData’

The following objects are masked from ‘package:car’:

    Guyer, UN, Vocab

Use the command
  to customize lattice options for effects plots.
See ?efffectTheme for details.

…and it never finishes loading. Does anyone know what might be going on? I have updated all packages and even re-installed the program.

Thank you and happy “R”-ing!


Is this working in R, but not in RStudio. If not, it’s not really a problem with the IDE. So, please change the category accordingly (perhaps belongs in “general”).


Thanks - actually XQuartz had somehow been deleted from my hard drive. I had to go into the framework files and manually root around, but once identified, a simple re-installation of XQuartz solved the issue. Rcmdr working perfectly again!
