[R] How can I add text in plot and x axis of figures created in ggplot2?

when you use facet there is just one X-axis title and one Y-axis title. As
an alternative you can create several plots and put them into one using the
As for adding text you can use geom_text and extract the x, y coordinates
from your data. When I add text, I usually create a separate data.frame
which in addition to the text I want to add and the positions also contains
indications of the global aesthetic and the facet column
Hope this helps
