Did you use one of the scripts that SJava creates to start R?  If you do

R CMD ldd /usr/lib/R/library/SJava/libs/SJava.so

you will be able to ascertain what is wrong with your library paths, and 
so fix it.

Please do read the posting guide and provide basic information like your 
version of R and SJava.  There's a considerable potential for mismatch.
