What does this show for you:

	> capabilities()["X11"]

If you get 'FALSE', and by chance you built this yourself, then you probably
omitted to install the X11 development packages, and overlooked the warning
that configure gave you.  

You could consider installing the prebuilt Ubuntu binaries that are provided
via CRAN and its mirrors; see the R FAQ.

Hth, Dirk

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