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

Overview

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.

Resolution

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

RUN \
  cd /tmp && \
  wget http://www.rstudio.org/download/latest/stable/server/ubuntu64/rstudio-server-latest-amd64.deb && \
  dpkg -i rstudio-server-latest-amd64.deb && \
  rm rstudio-server-latest-amd64.deb

RUN \
  echo "www-frame-origin=app.dominodatalab.com" >> /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.
