You are hooking into R mode, so you need to open an .R file for this to
work. If you just open dired or any other file it will not work.
This is a better way that should work from any tramp file:
(defun R+ ()
(if (and buffer-file-name
M-x R+ will do the right thing.
BTW, I think it would make sense to add inferior-R-remote-program-name
to ESS and to perform the above automatically?
