Dear Fehmi,

Curiously, I check the Rcmdr package on an up-to-date Ubuntu 7.10
system running R 2.6.2. I've just checked again after updating both
Ubuntu and all R packages, and I can't duplicate your problem -- the
"Tools -> Load packages" menu works fine for me, as does everything
else that I checked.

Perhaps other Ubuntu users can relate their experiences: Do they
encounter this problem, or does the Rcmdr seem to work. If the former,
I guess that there must be something peculiar about your system.
