I don't get it. I forgot to mentioned in my original post that my .bashrc did
contain the lines

export PATH
export PATH

but this was not enough to get M-x R working in emacs. I suppose emacs 
needs to
know where to find .bashrc or that I use bash and not some other shell, but I
do use the default location (~/.bashrc) so why was this not a solution?
