I am currently lacking the R Script folder in my processing toolbox under the advanced interface tab. I suspect this could be a result of the firewall in my company's wifi.

I already have R installed, just need to figure out how to link it. Preferably a method that does not require administrative rights.

Not using QGIS 2.8.1 but I think the following procedure should still be similar (I use 2.6.1):

  • Select from the toolbar, Processing > Options and configuration > Providers > R scripts.

  • Set the directory to where you installed R and make sure you enable Activate.

Processing options

  • Once done then click OK and you should see it in the Processing Toolbox. If not then try restarting QGIS.

R in Processing Toolbox

Hope this helps!
