Is there a dependency of rgl (required to run rCmdr with 3-D plots) that I
am unaware of?

This is the error R throws when trying to load the rgl package (downloaded
most recent from CRAN)

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
    unable to load shared library
6): Symbol not found: _glXSwapBuffers
  Referenced from: 
  Expected in: flat namespace
Error in library(rgl) : .First.lib failed for 'rgl'
Error in .C(symbol.C("rgl_quit"), success = FALSE, PACKAGE = "rgl") :
    "C" function name not in DLL for package 'rgl'
