Install the XMLRPC library in R :

install.packages("XMLRPC", repos= "http://www.omegahat.org/R", dependencies=TRUE)

The library depends on the XML and RCurl libraries. If errors occur see below.

If the xml2config library is missing, exit R.

Install the libxml2config library, from the command line, like so:

sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev

and try installing the XMLRPC library again.


If the curlconfig library is missing, exit R.

Install the libcurl library:

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-gnutls-dev

and try installing the XMLRPC library again.


If the dependencies do not get installed.

Install the XML and RCurl libraries individually in R:

install.packages("XML")
install.packages("RCurl")

and try installing the XMLRPC library again.
