Linux SPSS 24: R 3.2 was not found in this location.

When installing R essentials for linux it is unclear how to specify R path. Without this, the following error occures:

 R 3.2 was not found in this location. Please click Previous to select a different location, or install R 3.2 on this computer and run this installation again.
For me the answer was to proved a path where `lib64` of the R package is located, not where the R binary is as show on this screenshot

In the screenshot /opt/r32 is my installation folder (I compiled version 3.2.2 it myself from source). The binary R is in /opt/r32/bin. This will not work. The path must be to R folder inside lib64 folder.
