I try to use the R plugin StatET 3.1-M2 (0.2.1) under eclipse 3.1.1 in 
Linux. Everything works fine, except of the integration of the R console 
into eclipse.

On the StatET website (http://www.walware.de/goto/statet) it states:
Do you know, how to start R inside Eclipse on Unix/Linux preventing the 
batch-modus, which parameters are useful? Let me know.

and this is exactly the problem. I managed to convince R not to start in 
batch mobe by using the parameter --save, --no-save or --vanilla, but it 
  is stuck before reaching the input prompt. The last thing it says is:
[Previously saved workspace restored]

and that is it - and eclipse's progress bar is stuck. I can cancel it by 
pressing the cancel button, but the console closes.

Any ides on how to solve the problem?
