Hi there
I have an essentially pristine and full-upgraded system. When I try to install RStudio .deb packages from their official site, I get:
Code: [Select]
Selecting previously unselected package rstudio.
(Reading database ... 420648 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack rstudio-1.2.5033-amd64.deb ...
Unpacking rstudio (1.2.5033) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of rstudio:
 rstudio depends on libclang-dev; however:
  Package libclang-dev is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package rstudio (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Processing triggers for desktop-file-utils (0.24-1) ...
Processing triggers for mime-support (3.64) ...
Processing triggers for hicolor-icon-theme (0.17-2) ...
Processing triggers for shared-mime-info (1.15-1) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

The same error happens with the preview release. Is there some current problem with the clang packages? Is anyone here capable of having RStudio installed?
Thanks in advance.

Wonderful, hendrikL. It worked like a charm, for the preview release itself!
Thank you very much indeed!!!

Use apt to install packages locally, it will also resolve dependencies for you which dpkg won't.
Code: [Select]
apt install ./<name-of-package.deb>
