           Summary: Problem with displaying R graphics on Mac
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta1
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: actors

In beta1, we note that for R graphics to work on the Mac, one needs to have X11
running prior to starting Kepler and set the DISPLAY env variable to 0.0.
However, it turns out that DISPLAY was set for the BASH shell only so that it
is not available for applications launched by double clicking!. The correct way
to set it for applications is described at

We need to fix the installer to set DISPLAY for applications in the next
