## how to get the binary of gWidgetsRGtk2, if it cannot be built under R v4.0.2? [🇷 for BE/BA]

Dear all,

As I mentioned previously that gWidgetsRGtk2 cannot be built with R v4.0.2 under Windows 10 (x64), how can I get its binary file (compiled file, gWidgetsRGtk2.zip)? I did not build it of course. I just went to ...\R\library\gWidgetsRGtk2 directory and then used 7-zip (free & nice zip tool) to zip all directory of gWidgetsRGtk2 as a gWidgetsRGtk2.zip. To test if it worked or not, I deleted all gWidgetsRGtk2 directory from ...\R\library first and do install.packages("gWidgetsRGtk2.zip",repos=NULL). It worked. So to zip all ...\R\library seems a very useful backup method, unless we need to rebuild all packages due to upgrade of R (from v3.x.x -> v4.0.x). To restore or unzip all libraries back to ...\R\library may require the system administrator's privilege under Windows OS.

All the best,
