hm, at what stage exactly did that happen? were you able to at least choose a 
CRAN-mirror and select "ggplot2" from the recieved list?

you don't have to install R packages system wide, if only you want to use them 
alone. you can define a user specific directory for that, say 

 install.packages("ggplot2", lib="/home/donatas/R", dependencies=TRUE)

in order to work with packages in that directory, you must also tell rkward of 
its existence (settings -> configure rkward -> R-packages -> library paths, 
the lower window).

i'd reccomend this, to prevent you from messing up the package management of 
your distrubution.
