http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello I've just installed R for the first time, along with DBI, Rmysql packages - all from package manager (using Kubuntu at the moment). I can't connect to mysql: Code: con1 <-dbConnect(MYSQL(), user="myname", password="mypassword", host="localhost", dbname="casualty")  error in evaluating the argument 'drv' in selecting a method for function 'dbConnect': Error: could not find function "mysql" mysql is running. Is this this to do with the location of specific files? Many thanks Dave (Hardware)
