Rstudio suddenly stopped working, FATAL ERROR

R studio stopped working suddenly and i cant get it running again because i encounter a fatal error. I keep everything regularly updated

Could the two words (Slovenian?) with accented characters, ujemajoco and pomoc, be the problem?

Hi, ujemajoco (its with letter č in slovenian :D) means corresponding to, or that something fits well with something. Pomoc (also with č) means help. Other wise i dont know why two words could be connected with the error.

I just ran R commander and this is what it writes in the begining.
Type 'license()' or 'licence()' for distribution details.

Natural language support but running in an English locale

R is a collaborative project with many contributors.
Type 'contributors()' for more information and
'citation()' on how to cite R or R packages in publications.

Type 'demo()' for some demos, 'help()' for on-line help, or
'help.start()' for an HTML browser interface to help.
Type 'q()' to quit R.

WARNING: You're using a non-UTF8 locale, therefore only ASCII characters will work.
Please read R for Mac OS X FAQ (see Help) section 9 and adjust your system preferences accordingly.

[History restored from /Users/xxx/.Rapp.history]

I dont think this was the case before rstudio fatal error. What could this mean? Is it the problem with my workspace data or some history that i need to delete, cause i tried and could not find Users/xxx/... haha.

To me, this suggests a problem with the accent on the c in ujemjoco:
ERROR system error 92 (Illegal byte sequence) [str: ujemjoco, len: 10, from UTF-8, to ISO8859-1)

The WARNING in your last message reports that you are in a non-UTF8 locale so can only use ASCII characters, which does not include the accented c.

Have you followed the advice in the WARNING to read section 9 in the help R for Mac OS X?

If you type locale in the terminal, do you get something like this?


I have absolutely no experience with anything but English language on a Mac, so this is about as much help as I can offer.

You might try resetting RStudio:

Good luck!
