Hi all, 

Installed rattle and the required GTK+, but ran into problems.  did some research on the net which recomened removing GTK+ and insalling it from within R from the package RGTK2 which I did but that didn't resolve the problem.  

I get two different errors one is noticed as soon as I try to run rattle as bellow
> rattle()  ##after this command I get the following msg.
(rsession.exe:4012): Gtk-WARNING **: Unknown property: GtkMenuBar.ubuntu-local
Rattle timestamp: 2011-12-16 19:20:50



The other error is noticed when I try to load rdata into rattle. it's also worth mention that it seems buttons on the rattle gui don't seem to be as responsive, but anyway the error message is as follows:

(rsession.exe:4012): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_builder_get_object: assertion `GTK_IS_BUILDER (builder)' failed
Error in set.cursor() : attempt to apply non-function




I also ran the rattleInfo () command and noticed that only a small number of the suggested packages is downloaded with the setup.  bellow are the results of the rattleInfo command:
> rattleInfo()
