Starting R on my macbookpro

When I try to open Rstudio on my macbook pro, there is a white page charging but after this page close on her own and Rstudio can't start.
this is this version that i download https://download1.rstudio.org/desktop/macos/RStudio-2021.09.1-372.dmg

Have you also installed R from CRAN? If so, can you open its R.app or run R from the command line?

@Amandine , are you using a MacbookPro with the Intel or M1 chip?

I can advise on the Intel Chip. There are a few steps to follow for installing RStudio:

Once you have followed the installation guide, you will be able to run Rstudio.

HEADS-UP make sure that you have Xcode or XQuarts installed on your Mac.

Intel vs. M1 may be important as @Sivuyile suggests. To isolate this to RStudio, can you open a system (not RStudio) terminal window, please?

$ R

and paste the output?

I suggest you also check out recent issues with hardware accelerated rendering:

If your MacBook Pro is 2013 or earlier the rendering engine is probably the issue:
