If you install the version from CRAN, do you get the same results?

rgl needs X11 on your system.  Do other programs using it work, e.g. try 
running "glxgears" at the terminal, and try running 
"tcltk::tktoplevel()" in R.

BTW, this list isn't for contributed package support, so if it turns out 
that only rgl is failing, it may be best to move the discussion to 
https://github.com/dmurdoch/rgl/issues .
