I am used to using the [R] function choose.files() for interactive file selection in MS-Windows.
What is the comparable function in Linux? I expected the function file.choose() to display similar behavior, i.e., a graphical interface diplaying a file listing, but all I seem to get is a "text input prompt". This does not seem correct.
Enter file name:
I have seen gfile() function in the gWidgets library - but isn't there anything native?
Linux: Ubuntu 9.04, Gnome, [R] running in terminal or ESS GTK_Emacs (doesn't make any difference to the above).
