Dear Sarah,

I don't entirely follow what you did, but my guess is that you installed the Rcmdr and FactoMineR packages but not the RcmdrPlugin.FactoMineR package. If that's the case, then install the RcmdrPlugin.FactoMineR, e.g., via install.packages("RcmdrPlugin.FactoMineR") and try again. 

You should be able to load the plug-in from the R Commander "Tools > Load Rcmdr Plug-in(s)" menu (it works for me). Unfortunately, you can't load the RcmdrPlugin.FactoMineR  package directly by the command library(RcmdrPlugin.FactoMineR) because the authors of the plug-in apparently didn't make it self-starting.

I hope this helps,
