How to install R language on manjaro?

How to install R environment on Manjaro Linux? I went to the official website but they don’t have any package for arch to install R language. Could anyone please help to install the whole setup of it?


You can install it from command line with:

sudo pacman -S r

The Arch wiki seems quite extensive about it.


If you have an Intel CPU I’d strongly recommend getting r-mkl. The steps to get a functioning set up are very easy:

pamac install intel-mkl
pamac build r-mkl

Both packages are in the AUR. If you have a helper like yay you can use that instead of Manjaro’s pamac.

If you install r-mkl there is no need to install r. If you’re looking for an IDE I’d recommend RStudio:

pamac build rstudio-desktop-bin

As mentioned above, the Arch wiki has lots of info on all this.

EDIT: pamac commands edited to reflect that some packages are built from AUR.

Shouldn’t those pamac install commands be pamac build commands when the packages are from the AUR?

You’re totally right. Your comment also made me check intel-mkl and found that is now in community :man_shrugging:

Comment edited. But, just to make one thing clear, pamac install when used on an AUR package will then ask for pamac build anyway, right? One just saves one [Y] click.

Thank you brother :slightly_smiling_face:

Is there any package to install after that?
