Plotting queue job report fails. Rscript can't find function 'arrow'.

I found if I add library(grid) to gatk-protected / public / R / scripts / org / broadinstitute / sting / queue / util / queueJobReport.R the error goes away.

    I have bumped into the same problem, exactly the same error. It seems the R script is not available on the GATK github anymore. Another workaround is to add 'grid' to default library list so it can be preloaded into R.

    I hope the requirements of running the Rscript (the one that produces Qscript job report, if there are other R scripts) can be described somewhere on this forum/website, although I understand this is not really a major concern.

    Hi there,

    I will put this on the documentation to-do list. To be honest this is not a priority, so it may be a while, but we will get it done eventually.

    I've just started to work with QUeue and I've also stumbled over the problem, and indeed adding library(grid) is solving the problem. Do you accept pull requests on github to fix this and similar problems? The development there seems to be halted at he moment since there was no commit in the last six months.

    @holgerbrandl yes we do take pull requests, thank you. Queue is pretty stable so there's not much development happening there, but improvements are always welcome.
