You apparently don't have xdvi installed, which is used to view the
resulting document. How you get that installed on your OS, I don't know.
Depending on what you're doing, you might want to use the "file"
argument of latex function to output a latex file, and then do further
processing. Also, assigning the latex function call to a variable, x <-
latex(...) will suppress printing of the object, which is ultimately
what is trying to use xdvi.
