Hi Jay,

Rgiht. It sounds like gtk+ driver was not installed correctly. Did you install gtk+ driver with Macport first?

$ export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
$ sudo port selfupdate
$ sudo port install pkgconfig
$ sudo port install gtk2 +x11

Make sure all above four steps end up with no error. Then run source("preinst.r") again. If you still get some errors, you may consider removing all R first. And re-install R (I saw you installing R v3.6.x from your messages.)

» ...** testing if installed package can be loaded from temporary location
» R session is headless; GTK+ not initialized.

» Need GTK+ ? (Restart R after installing)
» 1: Install GTK+
» 2: Do not install GTK+

Do not install gtk+ like this. It won't work with macOS. It only works for Windows OS.

All the best,
