try the following steps and do report back
1. On your mac, open terminal and start R from within the terminal. if
that works, what does "which R" report?
2. If 1 worked, open Emacs from within this terminal, and then do
to get a terminal within Emacs. Does "R" work now, and if so, is it
finding the right version of R (which R)?
If it doesn't find R, ESS probably won't work either. Check your PATH
[I'm not sure Emacs will find R if you start Emacs from the "floating
bar" thing, rather than from within a terminal, as you need to ensure
your PATH etc is set up for Emacs to inherit it.]
3. If step 2 worked, M-x R should work.
If not, what does it say?
