Thank you, Helio. I guess I need to clean up stuff and try everything 
from scratch again.

But let me ask you a last question: Do you use a Debian system by 
yourself (maybe ubuntu) as well as the pre-compiled R version which 
comes with the official reps? If this is the case, does the script below 
(from the manual) run on your machine? In the manual it is said that on 
a linux machine one needs to compile R manually using the 
--enable-R-shlib option; that's why I am asking.


set R_functions on
foreign language=R
plus_one <- function(q) {
z = q+1
end foreign
scalar b=R.plus_one(2)
