Which Rgui version is this? A somewhat similar issue with opening files on some platforms was fixed shortly after 4.0.2 in Rgui rev 7849. 

I forget whether this was pushed to the CRAN binary (my install has 7847). At any rate, if yours is older, you may want to try Rgui.app from https://mac.r-project.org

However, I can run from the CLI in my XQuartz window just fine.  Where can I go to get help to get up and running? Thank you.
