Thank you for your help.
Yes I daily work with OS X4… and I know how R run better and faster with OS X6 : they're installed on my private computer! Unfortunately, I don't need statistics at home!!
Concerning my problem, I've checked it and you're right : tcltk doesn't work correctly. Here is the warning message :
tkPrgB> ## No test:
tkPrgB> pb <- tkProgressBar("test progress bar", "Some information in %",
tkPrgB+ 0, 100, 50)
Erreur dans structure(.External("dotTclObjv", objv, PACKAGE = "tcltk"), class = "tclObj") :
[tcl] invalid command name "toplevel".
It looks like an environment problem… but I don't understand what.

I'm moving this discussion to the r-sig-mac list, where you're more likely to get an informative response.
The Rcmdr package did work with Mac OS X 10.4 and versions 2.9.2 and 2.10.2 of R, but all of these versions are quite old, and I'm afraid that I no longer have an OS X 10.4 system. Maybe someone else with better memory of Mac OS X versions and older versions of R for the Mac will be able to tell you what to do. I do recall something about starting up X11 directly.
It looks as if the problem lies with Tcl/Tk, and you could check that by loading and testing the tcltk package independently of the Rcmdr, e.g.,
