Hmmm...I'm using Suse 9 and 10, and I don't have that problem. Can you give 
some more detail? By the default editor, do you mean KWrite? It's OK but Kate 
is somewhat better for programming. It's hidden way inside the start menu so 
I usually just go Start / Run command / kate.

Are you saying that

- create R script in editor
- save script
- start R
- >source("name of file")

does not work?
