Hi Marta,

Usually all it takes is installing R, emacs, and ess:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install r-base r-base-dev emacs ess

Then open a file with a .R exentsion, such as MyRscript.R. Emacs should enter 
ess mode, giving you an ESS menu and toolbar (assuming you've not turned 
disabled these in your emacs setup). From there you can use the menu to start 
R, or type M-x R <ret>.

If you continue to have trouble, please describe the steps you took and the 
errors that resulted.
