These instructions are for RStudio which you can also run on your desktop or laptop. ( These instructions are not for Rstudio Server.)

These instructions are for users who are connecting to hyak from a mac or linux machine. For mac users, you will have to first install X11 XQuartz https://www.xquartz.org/ .

(These instructions may also work for Windows users who have installed X11 software.)

Below abc is your userid and xyz is your hyak group.

For interactive use of RStudio:

ssh -X abc@hyak.washington.edu

To get an interactive node for 2 hours:

srun -p xyz -A xyz --time=2:00:00 --mem=100G --pty /bin/bash


module load r_3.1.3_rstudio
/sw/contrib/rstudio-0.98.1103/bin/rstudio

Now you can run Rstudio on the hyak compute node and the GUI will show up on your desktop or laptop machine.

  1. NOTE: The first time you pass the -X argument to a SSH connection, you'll receive a message 

     /usr/bin/xauth:  file /usr/lusers/myuser/.Xauthority does not exist

    The -X argument should make the file for you automatically though. IOW, this message should only display the first time you enable remote X access.
