hi Julio,

The R package requires you to have the Arrow and Parquet C++ libraries
installed. You can see instructions for installing these on Linux at

http://arrow.apache.org/install/

The package is supposed to successfully install if the libraries
aren't present, though, so there might be some bug with that logic.
