I tried to install rpy2 (pip install rpy2). I want to use the SDAPP4 extension with QGIS (QGIS shows up the message missing rpy2...). The system tells me always the same error: Tried to guess R's HOME but no R command in the PATH. What can I do to solve the problem? I'm using:

Windows XP
Python 2.7
R 2.11.0 (directory: C:\Programme\R\R-2.11.0)
QGIS 1.8

Sorry, I'm a beginner.

Any particular reason of using 2.11.0 R? Current version is 2.15.2. – radek Nov 9 '12 at 14:47
I read that the SDAPP4 extension just runs under R 2.11.0. – Pimpel Nov 9 '12 at 14:49
OK: new R 2.15.2 version...but now another problem: TypeError: sequence item 0: expected string, int found......Command python egg_info failed with error code 1 – Pimpel Nov 9 '12 at 14:54

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Please expand your answer, link-only answer are not a good way to create valuable information on GIS stackexchange. – Paul Hiemstra Mar 17 '13 at 9:01
