Hi Everyone,
I am currently using *R version 3.0.0 RC (2013-03-28 r62434) -- "Masked

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS- the Lucid Lynx.

I downloaded the  tar.gz of R 3.1.0 under my Downloads folder.
I changed my directory to Downloads folder and then used following commands
to install the version.

I used
tar -xzf tar.gz
cd R-3.1.0
make check

Now i can see a bin folder under R-3.1.0 which has R.
On the terminal when I use R it still gives me

How can I use R 3.1.0 version.
I also want to use that version on R studio.

I guess it is just the path issue?
Any help
