Sorry you didn't get a reply sooner.

There isn't currently a way to view the plots from R in plain terminal
IPython. As a workaround, use one of the ZMQ frontends. If you want to stay
in the terminal, 'ipython console' should work, and it can be configured to
display images coming in from the kernel.

I agree that there should be an option to use the R interactive plotting,
rather than showing static images. Can you file an issue about it so that
we don't forget?
