Thread: RStudio - tabs not closing - GUI problem?

    Default RStudio - tabs not closing - GUI problem?


    I can't close unsaved file tabs in Rstudio. The dialoque window asking if i want to save doesn't seem to record my clicking.
    The same problem appeared when asked if i want to save the workspace when leaving. Disabling that dialogue, from global options, got rid of the problem.
    However I wouldn't want to close the file tabs without being asked if i wanted to save them.

    I understand it could be a problem with the Qt libs Rstudio is linking to?

    I've installed RStudio with Yast.
    Tried installing the one from Rstudio website, but that one is asking for a lib I don't know how to install (or even if I should):
    " error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file "

    With Suse 43.2 Rstudio used to work fine.

    I'm not a programmer, but if anyone has any ideas about a starting point I can dig into it.

    Thank you.

    I was having the same problem with closing RStudio and the "Do you wish to save your Workspace?" window, I just googled "how to close R from console"
    and eventually clicked my way over to this web page
    that gives you the console command to quit RStudio and avoid that dialogue window completely

    tldr: quit(save = "no")

    Hope this helps!

    Generally speaking,
    Multimedia libraries like gstreamer should come from Packman.
    Adding the Packman repository should probably solve your install problem.

    As for what might be causing the tab problems, without some error info to work with I can only speculate wildly.
    If R Studio doesn't have some kind of logging, you can open up a console and start displaying what is written to your system log in real time before you try to execute the problem action... In your console run the following command
    journalctl -f
