When trying to start S-plus 6.2.1 for linux using Emacs 25.2.1 lucid and ess-17.11.2 under Elementary OS 5.0 (based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS), I get the following error:

ess-command: Wrong number of arguments: #[(com &optional buf sleep) "Á!" [com ess-eval-linewise] 2
("/usr/share/emacs25/site-lisp/ess/ess-dde.elc" . 4843)], 7

It seems that an S+ process is running, but when I try to issue a command, I get this error:

ess-get-process: No ESS process is associated with this buffer now

I tried with ess-18.10, but got another error telling that it could not find the Splus program. The executable is /usr/local/bin/Splus which is covered by both PATH and exec-path. There are no problems running R with either of the ess versions.

How do I fix it?

Kind regards,
