I have a Red Hat 7.0 system, plus glibc-2.2 and gcc-2.96.69. When I run the
R demo 'demo("graphics") with KDE it runs fine, but when I try it with Gnome
Type <Return> to start :
> opar <- par(ask = interactive() && (.Device %in% c("X11",
"GTK", "windows", "Macintosh")))
> x <- rnorm(50)
> opar <- c(opar, par(bg = "white"))
> plot(x, ann = FALSE, type = "n")
Hit <Return> to see next plot:
> abline(h = 0, col = gray(0.9))
> lines(x, col = "green4", lty = "dotted")
Error in plot.xy(xy.coords(x, y), type = type, col = col, lty = lty, ...) :
Error: X11 cannot allocate additional graphics colors.
Consider using X11 with colortype="pseudo.cube" or "gray".
This has happened with every release of R I've tried; the latest is
R-base-1.2.1-2. BTW, if it matters, the display is set to 800x600, 8-bit
color. But it works with KDE.
