You can install RStudio on Ubuntu using the terminal. Here's a step by step guide : 1. **First, install R.** Open terminal and type the following commands: ```bash sudo apt update sudo apt install r-base ``` Press `Enter` after each line. This will install R. 2. **Next, install dependencies needed for RStudio.** Enter the following command: ```bash sudo apt install gdebi-core ``` Press `Enter`. This will install the `gdebi` tool, which allows you to install local deb packages resolving and installing its dependencies. 3. **Download the latest RStudio package.** Go to the RStudio download page ( and find the link for Ubuntu systems. You can download it using the `wget` command on terminal. Replace 'download_link' with the actual link. ```bash wget 'download_link' ``` 4. **Install RStudio.** After downloading, navigate to the directory where it was downloaded (usually ~/Downloads) and install. Replace 'file_name' with actual file name. ```bash sudo gdebi 'file_name' ``` 5. Finally, launch it by typing `rstudio` in the terminal or by clicking the RStudio icon in your applications menu. Once all steps are done, you should have RStudio installed and ready to use on your Ubuntu system.
