Can you report what you get, in R, for capabilities()?

If tcltk is FALSE, then the issue is related to your new R install.
You may need to have the tcl-dev and tk-dev (guessing names) rpms
installed as well before intalling the R rpm.  This would at least be
true if you wanted to build R from source.

widgetTools doesn't work without tcltk working, no surprise.

This is not an error I recognize.  Could it be that you have a stale
tcltk package?  Perhaps try update.packages?
