[R] Problems with RcmdrPlugin.temis when Rcdr starts

Dear Renato,

There's not enough information here to diagnose the problem, but perhaps the following will help:

First, I have no trouble loading the RcmdrPlugin.temis package, either directly via library(RcmdrPlugin.temis), in which case it brings up the Rcmdr interface, or indirectly via the Rcmdr "Tools -> Load plugin package(s)" menu.

Here's the R session info from my successful session:

Like you, I'm running OS X Yosemite (10.1.1).

Second, I noticed that the command you issued was library(Rcmdr), not library(RcmdrPlugin.temis), yet the latter was loaded. I assume that you set the Rcmdr plugins option to do this. If so, remove that option, and determine whether the Rcmdr loads properly *without* the RcmdrPlugin.temis plug-in. 

If it does not, there may be a problem with your X-windows installation. Try to load the tcltk package directly via library(tcltk). If that produces an error, reinstall XQuartz. For details, see the Rcmdr installation notes at <http://socserv.socsci.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Misc/Rcmdr/installation-notes.html>, especially the section on Mac OS X trouble-shooting.

I hope this helps,
