Hello!
I need your help to run the package "psych"
Code:
> install.packages("psych")
I get a message
Code:
> install.packages("psych")

'/tmp/Rtmpry2wCg/downloaded_packages'
It does not let me extract it either.

Also, does anyone use the mailing list of R, I subscribed but I have NO idea how to access older mails to search.

I take it you're new to R? You might want to read a beginner's guide - there are a few recommended in the "Info for R users" thread.

You don't have any problems. You installed the package just fine. But before you use it you need to load it -
Code:
library(psych)

I tried some of the functions of the package and they had errors, so I supposed that something was wrong with the installation. The output box did not give an indication that the library was loaded fine.
I 'll try again tomorrow and I will come back.
Thank you for your help! :tup:
