I love using tikzDevice. When preparing LaTeX documents I switched to prepare all graphs in GNU R and then port them to TeX using tikzDevice. Recently I have moved to GNU R 3.0.0 and was shocked to find that this package is no longer available on CRAN.
Fortunately I was able to find package on the web. Unfortunately – installing old package on GNU R version 3.0.0 simply generates an error when trying to load it.
So for now the only solution for me was to:
- Install GNU R 2.15.3 in parallel to new one (fortunately this is not a problem)
- downloading tikzDevice 0.6.3 which can be found at http://download.r-forge.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.15/
- installing tikzDevice manually from local disk
- installing filehash package that it requires
Fortunately this worked.
I really hope that tikzDevice will be back to CRAN in the future.
