I have an R block like so:

#+begin_src R

library(lattice)
library(tikzDevice)

=bunch of code=

barchart(side$name~side$x2,groups=side$type,horiz=T,
         xlim=c(0,0.75),col=c("lightblue","yellow"),xlab="Product
Performance (2-box)")

dev.off()
tools::texi2dvi("bar-2b.tex",pdf=T)

#+end_src

The resultant tex file is empty where the tikz code should be and
texi2dvi fails. Any suggestions? If I change my plot to base graphics
with barplot, it works. I'm thinking this is a lattice/babel issue?


Thanks for any input,
John

Drat. I meant to add that when I run the code exactly as I have it
from R directly, it works. I literally copy and paste my org-mode
babel block code line by line into a terminal and obtain the proper
output via tikz. *That's* the perplexing part. What would be working
directly from R and not from Org-mode?

For reference, I've generated plenty of stuff just like this via
org-mode/babel. Come to think of it, even another lattice plot.

Not sure how to pinpoint what's goofy about this specific plot.

As with ggplot, you have to print your plot (if I remember correctly), i.e:

print(barchart(...))

I stumbled on this, too but hadn't posted back to the list yet. What
got me on the track to the solution was copying my babel block code
into an R source file and trying to do = > source("path/to/file")=
directly from R. That wasn't working either, so I knew it was
something I was doing and not org. I found the R faq which said that
source files don't generate output for everything unless you tell them
to print() :)

Thanks!
John
