XQuartz automatically launches RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All!

    I just updated MRO from 3.3.0 to 3.5.1 on a Mac with OS X 10.11.6. I have noticed that now every time I launch R (or RStudio), XQuarts automatically launches too, while this didn't happen with MRO 3.3.0.

    Is this normal? If so, why does it do that?

  • It looks like their is a bug in the R package 'colorspace' 1.2.5 that causes this behavior, according to this post:

    I would try upgrading the colorspace package to the latest version, 1.3-2.

  • You can remove the old version of 'colorspace' with:


    before installing the new version.

  • I am not sure that's the issue because when I launch R, 'colorspace' is not loaded.

    Any other suggestions?
