[R] tclk, tcltk

I have been having problems with these two 'libraries' since I installed
I have built a package with couple of functions so that I can load it at
startup every time R is booted. The problem is that I have the following
error every time I call the library

Loading required package: tclk
Error: package 'tclk' could not be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
There is no package called 'tclk' in: library(pkg, character.only = TRUE, logical = TRUE, lib.loc = lib.loc)

However I can load tcltk library now (thanks to Dirk for helping me with
this). I can load the functions I have in the library and everything works

I cannot find any information on this except the following thread which
was not resolved.

Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

P.S. what is the difference between tclk and tcltk? and why calling the
installed library is requiring tclk? I just made up a dummy package with a

fun<-function(x) x^2

just to test and the same thing happens (Loading required package: tclk

This is on a Linux debian unstable with the kernel  2.4.20-bf2.4-xfs

Thank you for all the help.
