What is the best way of installing the R package XLConnect in Ubuntu 12.04 x86?
I tried to manually install it via R, using
install.packages("XLConnect",dependencies=TRUE), but after half an hour of compiling, when I tried to load it, I got this error:
> require(XLConnect) Loading required package: XLConnect Warning message: In library(package, lib.loc = lib.loc, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, : there is no package called ‘XLConnect’
I googled for XLConnect Ubuntu but couldn't find any obvious name for the package.
