Dear Francesca,

As you probably noticed, your message is very difficult to read, but it
looks as if you haven't installed the X11 version of Tk. As well, you should
install the Rcmdr package with all dependencies, if you haven't already done
so, either through the package manager or via install.packages("Rcmdr",

Instructions for installing the Rcmdr package under Mac OS X are at

I hope this helps,
