This hint is questionable.  There is usually no need to start X11 for R, given that one can open a graphics window with quartz().  I only need X when R insists on firing up a Tcl/Tk UI, such as when installing packages and selecting mirror servers from within R.

M-x R RET will start R within Emacs.

R from a *shell* buffer works fine for me - the error message quoted is odd, coming from Emacs.
