Sorry, I'm not familiar with "Exceed", but you should be able 
to run affylmGUI from an xterm.  The line:
> affylmGUI
looks wrong.  It should be affylmGUI().  But maybe this is just 
a copy-paste error between R and your email software.  Please 
let me know what errors (if any) you get from the following:
tclRequire("Tktable") # after running library(tcltk)
tclRequire("BWidget") # after running library(tcltk)

I used to have an automatic message box, asking "Start affylmGUI 
(Yes/no) ?" after loading library(affylmGUI), but this would 
mean that the entire affylmGUI() program was run before 
finishing the initialization function for the affylmGUI 
package (.First.lib()) and this seemed to cause problems on 
some operating systems, so at the moment, on non-Windows systems, 
you have to type or copy/paste: 

I do most of my testing on Windows, but I do have access to 
Fedora Linux (and with a bit of effort, maybe I could try 
installing R etc. on a SUN machine...)
