iNZight not yet supported with R 3.4.0 on macOS El Captian or later
Due to significant changes in the latest release of R (3.4.0), the dependency RGtk2 is not yet available to users running macOS El Capitan or later (10.11+). If you have R 3.4, you can install an older version (3.2.4 or earlier), and then download the RSwitch App to change versions of R before running iNZight.
Of course, if you have installed the necessary command line tools to compile R packages with R 3.4.0, you should be OK installing iNZight and it's dependencies.
To run iNZight, you'll need the following dependencies. If you've had iNZight running on your machine before, you'll already have GTK and XQuartz.
iNZight runs on most common Linux systems, including all Debian-based distributions (Ubuntu, Linux Mint) and any others on which you can install R. The installer shown below only works on Ubuntu and perhaps some other debian-based systems; if you have another distribution, you'll need to install R yourself and install iNZight as an R package.
You'll first need to make sure you have the necessary dependencies. Exactly what these are depends on your specific version of linux.
Ubuntu 14.04 or later, Linux Mint:
apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev
Ubuntu 14.04 or later, Linux Mint:
apt-get install xorg-dev
