With all due respect: if this "Linux" thing is new to you, you may want to
also get some local help from a local user group, as well as from a decent
book or two.
As to your question, R is well supported on Ubuntu. However, release 7.10
contains the then-current version 2.5.2. Installing R on Ubuntu is no
different from installing any other (pre-built) package on Ubuntu. You could
try any of the graphical package manager, search for 'r-base' and install
that. Similarly, on the command-line, do
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install r-base
If that does not work, get local help with the Unix side of things. Specific
questions for R on Debian or Ubuntu can be posted on r-sig-debian (after you
subscribe to the list so that you can post), but please consider a basic
Ubuntu or Linux help list for questions more focussed on getting going under
Once you are comfortable with your Ubuntu system, consider steps from the R
FAQ / appropriate CRAN/Ubuntu README to get current R versions for Ubuntu via
the CRAN mirrors (rather than Ubuntu itself).
Hope this helps, Dirk
