The package is on CRAN, but if you want to install this development version, you may follow these instructions:

In a terminal emulator:

# Clone DataEntry repository from github: 
git clone

In R:

# Install DataEntry dependencies:
install.packages(c("gWidgets2", "RGtk2", "gWidgets2RGtk2"))
# Compile the translations:
# Install the package:
install.packages("DataEntry", repos = NULL, type = "source",
                 INSTALL_opts = "--no-test-load")

If you do not want to use git, you may do the following in R instead:

# Install DataEntry dependencies:
install.packages(c("gWidgets2", "RGtk2", "gWidgets2RGtk2"))
# Donwload DataEntry from github:
download.file("", "")
# Compile the translations:
# Install the package:
install.packages("DataEntry-master", repos = NULL, type = "source",
                 INSTALL_opts = "--no-test-load")


  • On Debian based systems (such as Ubuntu), you can install RGtk2 with the following command in a terminal emulator:
     sudo apt-get install r-cran-rgtk2
  • You only need to compile the translations if you want to run DataEntry whith its messages translated into Portuguese.

  • The argument INSTALL_opts = "--no-test-load" is necessary only on Windows.
