Can't open Rstudio from Linux Mint 17.1

ERROR MESSAGE, copied from terminal:
rstudio: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(The commands 'rstudio' and 'rstudio --run-diagnostics' both produce the same error.)

rdesktop.log is a blank file.
rsession-kevin.log is a blank file.

RStudio.Version() produces no message, just returns me to the prompt.

I have launched it in the past, but I haven't used rstudio in a couple years, mostly just running R from the terminal (which still works).

Steps taken:
apt-get install (and similar)
Googling and copying & pasting solutions that worked for others.

What copy of RStudio did you install? You likely need a version that's compiled to use libssl 1.1. I believe the version we distribute for Ubuntu 18.04 should serve that case: see for the download link.
