AFNI Message Board

Dear AFNI users-

We are very pleased to announce that the new AFNI Message Board framework is up! Please join us at:

Existing user accounts have been migrated, so returning users can login by requesting a password reset. New users can create accounts, as well, through a standard account creation process. Please note that these setup emails might initially go to spam folders (esp. for NIH users!), so please check those locations in the beginning.

The current Message Board discussion threads have been migrated to the new framework. The current Message Board will remain visible, but read-only, for a little while.

Sincerely, AFNI HQ

Hello from Montreal!

I'm attempting to download AFNI onto my PC. Everything works except for R package installation.

With the following command: rPkgsInstall -pkgs ALL -site '[];

I get the output:

Installing packages into ‘/usr/local/lib/R/site-library’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages(pkgs_miss, dep = NA, repos = site) :
'lib = "/usr/local/lib/R/site-library"' is not writable
Error in install.packages(pkgs_miss, dep = NA, repos = site) :
unable to install packages
Calls: getPkgs -> install.packages
Execution halted

I've added write permissions to /usr/local/lib/R/site-library with: sudo chmod +w /usr/local/lib/R/site-library, though this did not solve the issue.

Is there any advice you can provide or any other information I can provide?
