You should also have got a dialog with a somewhat more elaborate (if perhaps 
not overly helpful) message?

Anyway, this indicates that the version of
   library (rkward)
does not match the application version, i.e. some kind of installation 
problem. Most of the time, all you're missing is a simple
   make install
However, sometimes the problem is that you have several versions of the 
library installed, in separate locations. This may happen when mixing 
"packaged" installs (i.e. .debs) with "manual" installs with differing library 
installation paths. Generally,
   sudo R CMD REMOVE rkward
and then repeating the installation will get rid of the conflicting 
installation. In case it does not, you may need to remove from each path in 

Note that there is a separate message if the wrong .rc-files (in the KDE 
directory) are found. But that one is slightly harder to get, in my experience
