Dear Helmut,

Very good question indeed. Right, cairo is not used in bear. All plots in bear are shown with graphics device as the default, as well as pdf(). However the other four packages (stab, PKfit, ivivc & tdm) we developed need cairo device since we show the plots in GUI as below picture. CairoDevice is the only available package in R to work with RGtk2. That may be why they both retired at the same time. Sorry to confuse you.


One major advantage of plotting in GUI is that we can further manipulate the plots simply, such as adjusting the x- & y-axis scale (package stab), simulation, etc.. The video is an example.

All the best,
