type R at the prompt in a gnome terminal and
you can use R.


There is the GUI Rcmdr (see message of Sir John
Fox preceding your message), a package you should
install. Install packages car and foreign first, 
because Rcmdr needs them.
(see the R documentation on CRAN on how to install 
a package)
If you installed the packages successfully,
type library(Rcmdr) at the R prompt and you
will have a GUI.



PS using the command line increases speed
and flexibility IMHO
