Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):
- Open an Jupyter Notebook with R kernel on https://hub-paws.wmcloud.org/
- Install the stringi library : install.packages("stringi")
- Load the stringi library : library("stringi")
- You've got the message " unable to load shared object '/srv/r/stringi/libs/stringi.so':"
On Ubuntu, stringi requires the library libicu-dev to be installed (https://stringi.gagolewski.com/install.html).
Is it possible to install libicu-dev on PAWS ?
FYI stringi is a very important string manipulation library in R. stringr depends on stringi.
See https://public.paws.wmcloud.org/User:PAC2/stringi.ipynb for an example.
