I want to install minitab on my machine, running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
How can I install it, or something similar?
R is a system for statistical computation and graphics. It consists of a language plus a runtime environment with graphics, a debugger, access to certain system functions, and the ability to run programs stored in script files.
The core of R is an interpreted computer language which allows branching and looping as well as modular programming using functions. Additionally, several thousand extension "packages" are available from CRAN, the Comprehensive R Archive Network, many also as Debian packages, named r-cran-<name>. For R an extension (library) R Commander exists, which brings a GUI to perform most things that Minitab is capable of.
To install R and RStudio in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu open the terminal and type:
sudo apt install r-base libopenblas-base libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 libgstreamer0.10-0 libjpeg62 cd ~/Downloads wget -c --tries=3 --timeout=120 https://download1.rstudio.org/rstudio-xenial-1.1.419-amd64.deb sudo apt install ./rstudio-xenial-1.1.379-amd64.deb
