Hi Yung-jin,

» Linux and macOS have no problem (always) at all to get upgraded.

Yep. libgtk is part of the major Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu). OS X is not my thing. ;-)

» However, my solution is just to wait until the binary zip is ready on CRAN.

The pragmatic solution. Perfect.

» How did you install package cairoDevice previously without GTK library installed beforehand? with its binary zip file?

Yes. I rarely need it, so I’m happy being a minor version behind for a while.


Edit: What might be OK for users, is not if one wants to build a package in RStudio. :not really:
In checking RStudio threw warnings that “version 3.3 of the Rtools are not compatible with R 3.5.3” (heck, I have v3.5.0.4). When ignoring the warnings, building works. I turned out that RStudio used Strawberry’s gcc-compiler (v4.8.2). Oh, my goodness. The one in RTools is v4.9.3 (of June 26, 2015). Current is v8.3 (of last February).
I gave in. Rtools in C, first in path, RStudio happy.

Cheers,
Helmut Schütz
