[R-sig-Debian] Rattle - libglade not found

I have just installed rattle on Ubntu 9.04, and R  2.8.1 and get an
error message when I try to run it.

> library(rattle)
> rattle()
Error in rattle() :
  The RGtk2 package did not find libglade installed. Please install it.

I have installed libglade2-dev  through synaptic, and following
suggestion from an earlier thread re-installed RGtk2 using
install.packages, and through synaptic.

Can anyone offer some help - you may realise that I am not that
familiar with Linux/Ubuntu.

Many thanks,


P.S. I have cross posted this on the Ubuntu forum, before remembering
this forum existed.
