[IPython-dev] ipython notebook and ggplot2

The trick is that in the rmagic code, it calls dev.off() and does some handling for base graphics after every R code cell is executed.

When I use ggplot2 in the terminal app (not notebook), what I do is call 

ggsave('temp.png'); system('open temp.png') 

At the end of my plotting session. This pops up the plot in my image editor.

For the notebook, I think it's a little more complicated because you have to send the png to the front end through the display pub.

I do not know why, when I run the code nothing comes up! The same code works fine using the usual R interface and all other non ggplot2 graphs work fine under the nb. Of course, I previously loaded the ggplot2 library before plotting. Is there a trick, does anyone knows anything about this?
