Hi Jeff,
Your chances of getting a useful response will increase if you provide
some additional information. For example, which version of R? Which
version of ggplot2? What sequence of commands produces the error? What
_exactly_ does the error message say?


update.packages(ask=FALSE, checkBuilt=TRUE)
