It looks like your new to R, welcome to the community.  A couple quick
notes, first the bug reporting system for the R community is
specifically for bugs only, not support issues.  The developers of R
are quite strict about this.  It looks that you've filed a couple of
bug reports, whereas a better place to send such queries would be
R-help.  Second, R Commander, is an add on package, so questions
regarding it's use should be directed to the appropriate email list (I
don't know it, because I don't use R commander.)  The bug tracker, and
the developer list that bugs are sent to, are for core R issues.

As an R newbie I think you'll find the following sites helpful
<http://wiki.r-project.org/rwiki/doku.php>, and

I'm guessing that the tcltk package isn't available because it hasn't
been installed yet.  Something similar to install.packages("tcltk")
ought to do the trick.  type ?install.packages at an R prompt for more
