If you don't mind an extra step between R and LaTeX, you could use Inkscape to modify your graphics: http://www.inkscape.org/ It is a (very nice!) vector graphics editor which: - works with SVGs (as produced with the RSvgDevice package) - imports PDFs (really well in the latest development version) - is available for free, on most platforms and - exports PDFs that nicely integrate in LaTeX documents - exports PSTricks graphics Then two roads are opened for you: 1- either get a TTF version of the LaTeX fonts (there are packages for this on all linux distros I know, for use with Lyx and you can probably find them on the web otherwise) and change all the fonts to those once your document is in Inkscape (select all > text and font > select the font) 2- or open the document with inkscape and export it to pstricks I personally use Inkscape on all my R graphics because I find it easier and quicker to get decent graphics and R and refine their look in Inkscape than to get them perfect in R in one shot ( though with ggplot2 things are improving on R's side).
