Installing Jupyter and R on Fedora

This is a replication and extension to Dr. Jason Brownlee’s post. I am making these notes, so I can repeat the installation process at a later time.

Step 1) Provision a Fedora instance using your favorite VM Manager. I happened to use VMware, but Dr. Brownlee’s VirtualBox worked just fine. I recommend fully patch the Fedora installation before proceeding to the Python and R steps.

Step 2) Verify the Python 3 installation and install the packages described by Dr. Brownlee’s post.

Step 3) Install Jupyter using pip:

  1. $ sudo python3 -m pip install –upgrade pip
  2. $ sudo python3 -m pip install jupyter
  3. Review the web page http://jupyter.org/install for more information.

Step 4) Start up the Jupyter notebook server: $ jupyter notebook

Step 5) The default browser should kick in and display the Jupyter notebook web page.

Step 6) Install R using the command line with: $ sudo dnf install R

Step 7) Browse RStudio web page and find the Linux client appropriate for your installation. In my case, it was the installer for “Fedora 19+/RedHat 7+/openSUSE 13.1+ (64-bit).”

Step 8) Click on “Install” and then “Launch.” The familiar RStudio interface should appear.
