Hope I'm in the right place to ask this.
Running R 4.1.2 on Linux Mint 19.3. I do have R Commander and R Studio
in place and working, so I'm not without choices for a GUI to use R.
However, I wanted to try out the Rattle interface.
The package installs OK, but it apparently needs the RGtk2 package to
run its graphic state. When I try to install that package I get the
Installing package into ‘/home/brian/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/4.1’

The downloaded source packages are in
In install.packages("RGtk2") :

I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to solve this. Any help would be
appreciated. Otherwise, I guess I'd be SOL for trying it out and fall
back to my existing two options.
