I am using Rstudio to load the package "later" running into the following error:
library(later) Fehler: package or namespace load failed for ‘later’: .onLoad in loadNamespace() für 'later' fehlgeschlagen, Details: Aufruf: createCallbackRegistry(id, parent_id) Fehler: Can't create event loop 0 because it already exists.
Loading the package using the RGUI works fine. Any suggestions what is causing the problem?
Furthermore, loading the package seems to work when I wait a couple of minutes after opening Rstudio.
I do not understand what kind of event loop might already exist.
It might be noteworthy that this problem seem to occur, when I work remote.

You get the message you saw if you try to run the
later:::.onLoad function twice. That shouldn’t happen normally, but it might happen if you load it, unload it, and load it again.
Given your comment that it works if you wait a couple of minutes, I’d guess that RStudio is loading it then unloading it, but there’s some delay in the full unloading. I don’t know if there’s any way to affect this.
