Rstudio error: "R graphics engine version <n> is not supported by this version of RStudio"


When running up a Rstudio notebook in Domino, you may see the following error when trying to run simple plot command. For example:

Warning message: 
R graphics engine version 12 is not supported by this version of RStudio. The Plots tab will be disabled until a newer version of RStudio is installed.


This can be resolved by upgrading Rstudio.

Add the following to the docker file section in your compute environment. You will need to re-start your Rstudio notebook afterwards

  cd /tmp && \
  wget && \
  dpkg -i rstudio-server-latest-amd64.deb && \
  rm rstudio-server-latest-amd64.deb

  echo "" >> /etc/rstudio/rserver.conf && \
  chown ubuntu:ubuntu /etc/rstudio

Note: the www-frame-origin value needs to point to the correct domain for your deployment. This article explains what this value does in greater detail.
