For both, you could use the packaged versions available in your Ubuntu

  $ sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install r-cran-rcmdr r-cran-xml

Otherwise, you need to know which of the '-dev' packages to have installed to
be able to compile packages. So as a first step until you know your system
and its pieces better, stick with what's pre-packaged.


  $ apt-cache search r-cran-

shows you what's available. Far from all on CRAN, but a fair number.

Hope this helps, Dirk
