My version of R is 3.6.0 and it works on my Ubuntu 18.04.
But I need Rstudio.
After installing Rstudio version 1.3.235 on Ubuntu 18.04, I give the "rstudio" command and I get:
rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I read several forums on this, for days now. I cannot find a solution.
[ FYI I also tried installing older versions of Rstudio taken from the Rstudio web site. Some of them do not install at all: even though the installation window reaches 100 percent, the "rstudio" command gives "command not found". One older version (1.2.1335) does install, but then I get an "Unpublished" error or something similar ]
I understand that the "libssl not found" error might be related to a path problem of that library, if it is looking for that file in usr/bin and instead it is in another folder.
But I would need to know
- in which folder is the rstudio script mentioning that path
- in which script file
- which folder has the libssl library, so I can correct it in the script
But this is just an hypothesis...
The solution is probably something else.
