I have a new install of Ubuntu 16.04 on a laptop. I notice a new
problem. Running from ESS *R* help.start() succeeds and browser is
displayed, but after choosing a link on that page (say "Packages")
that the ESS session is essentially dead. The *R* seems locked
The *R* session looks like this:
Making 'packages.html' ... done
And I cannot find a way to recover.
Do you see this as well?
I don't know why Ubuntu packaging is staying with last year's ESS,
that's the next problem I have to solve in their setup. If you know,
let me know...
