Dear Helmut,

» » failed to install 'gWidgets'
» » failed to install 'gWidgetsRGtk2'
»
» These two packages were retired from CRAN ...

I don't know that. :-( Thank Helmut. I am totally doomed and the party is over now.

» ... Not something I would recommend an inexperienced RUser.

Haha~ still joking.

» ... Since the original GUI-packages are retired, it’s up to Yung-jin to deal with the problem (i.e., adapt his packages to work with the gWidgets*2 packages).

It's not retired. It was removed from CRAN since the author did not respond, though it still works well under R v4.0.x. Hopefully it will come back again soon. It happened before as far as I can remember.

» @Yung-jin: “The gWidgets2 package provides a programming interface for making graphical user interfaces within R. The package is a rewrite of the gWidgets package...

gWidgets2 is a disaster to me. It's not upgraded version of gWidgets at all. It's like an add-on to gWidgets. I have tried it and the GUI just looked messed up.

All the best,
