Why don;t you install the Rggobi that is provided via Ubuntu?  It is version
2.1.4-4-1 and it corresponds to the 2.1.4-2 version of Ggobi you just
installed. Just do 'sudo apt-get install r-omegahat-ggobi'

On Debian, we are now at 2.1.5-* for both (and we renamed it r-cran-rggobi as
it now resides on CRAN).

Hth, Dirk

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
