[R-SIG-Mac] R2.11 Rattle & Co

I have the exact same problem here. 

I looked around and it seems that "rggobi" is a required dependency. I tried 
to install it different ways but it always fails:

* installing *source* package ‘rggobi’ ...
checking for pkg-
config... no
checking for GGOBI... configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old.  Make sure 
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may 
set the environment variables GGOBI_CFLAGS
and GGOBI_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man 
page for more details.

To get pkg-config, see <http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/>.See `config.log' for more details.
ERROR: configuration 
failed for package ‘rggobi’
* removing ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.11/Resources/library/rggobi’

That's where I am...so far

Simon, Morgan,

I have the latest version of Rattle, 
2.5.30, correctly installed, I  
think, and running on R version 2.11.0 Patched (2010-05-01 r51879)  
under OS X 
10.5.8.  I have the same problem as you, Morgan, i.e., the  
Gtk warning "Unable to find default local directory 
monitor type".   
Here is a run that provokes the message:

The rattle() function seems to start X11.  This takes some time.  When  
the X11 console finally appears, 
ensure that Data is the active tab  
and Source is set to Spreadsheet.  Click the Filename button.  On my  

installation that is sufficient to cause the warning.  Is that your  
experience, Morgan?  It might be necessary to 
begin browsing in the  
Select A File dialog.  In that case, select All Files in the file type  
dropdown, navigate to, 
say, a tab-separated file, and click Open.  I  
enclose such a file for your convenience.
