You can start R with "R". Be sure that the path were the R (the link
to) is located is added to your search path. I think the default location
is "/usr/local/bin". root for example won't has this path in the search
list. Any other user should. If you want to add and use the bash-shell you
can add
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin

anyway, the direct way with absolute paths should go like this.


it think, i hope, i can't verify this now.
