As Michael said, when you install R on Linux, you have no GUI, you can 
run it only in the terminal. If you want something more user-friendly, 
there are a couple of GUI for R on Linux, my prefered being Rkward 

but you will maybe have to install the latest version (so adding sources 
as you did), s the version in the repo (that you get with apt-get) has a 
few bugs

Hope this helps
