Some more info:
1. The library folder have to exist; if not, then R will silently ignore it.
2. Try call your .libPaths(my_new_folder) setup in an interactive R
session. Then, in the same session, look at .libPaths(). The first
element should be your new folder. If not, make sure it exists, e.g.
3. If (1)-(2) is correct, then it might be that you save your
.Rprofile in the wrong location (or as .Rprofile.txt which happens in
some Windows editors, e.g. Notepad - if so, save with quotation
marks). You can verify you've saved it in the correct place by
file_test("-f", "~/.Rprofile"). To find the full location, do
4. If you saved .Rprofile in the correct place, it could be that there
is a missing newline on the last line. If that is the case, then R
silently ignores that line.
You might find the startup package helpful (disclaimer: I'm the
author); For (4), you can run startup::check() and it'll tell you and
fix potential issues like this one, e.g.
Backed up R startup file: ‘~/.Rprofile’ (29 bytes) ->
‘~/.Rprofile.bak.20180726-122923’ (29 bytes)
In check_rprofile_eof(all = all, fix = fix, backup = backup, debug = debug) :
SYNTAX ISSUE FIXED: Added missing newline to the end of file
~/.Rprofile, which otherwise would cause R to silently ignore the file
in the startup process.
