The script that I previously published to handle OSX installs has been updated to also handle installing RStudio daily desktop builds on Ubuntu Linux hosts.
You need to install either
wget in order to use this script. It
only understands Ubuntu installation and uses
dpkg to perform the install.
If run as a non-
sudo is used when running
You may need to follow this script with a
apt-get install -f to install
RStudio package dependencies (using
sudo if appropriate).
To use this script, download it to your own machine, make it executable, and run it. Use it every day!
