Context: I am trying to change the legend labels for the Indices variable which contains "Positive" and "Negative" in "d_posneg" data frame.

enter image description here

Problem: However, my attempts have not yet worked. At present this is the code line that I am attempting to rename labels with in the graph below (line 6 of the ggplot):

scale_fill_discrete(name = "Indices", labels = c("Positive Emotion", "Negative Emotion")) +

Question: Does anyone know how to solve this?

See attached file for plot enter image description here

and code below for more context:

lines <- c("Positive" = "solid", "Negative" = "dotted")

fig1_1 <- d_posneg %>% # plot `posemo` and `negemo`
  ggplot(mapping = aes(x=year, y=rel_freq, linetype=factor(Indices))) +
  geom_line(alpha=1, size=0.7) +
  theme_classic() +
  scale_linetype_manual(values=lines) +
  scale_fill_discrete(name = "Indices", labels = c("Positive Emotion", "Negative Emotion")) +
  labs(x="Year", y="Positive Emotion and Negative Emotion Index") +
  scale_x_continuous(breaks=seq(1970,2017,2)) +
  expand_limits(y=1.5) +
  scale_y_continuous(breaks=seq(0.0,3, 0.1)) +
  theme(axis.text.x=element_text(angle=45, hjust=1)) +
  theme(legend.position=c(0.15,0.75)) 
print(fig1_1)

Solution = move all of the arguments to scale_linetype_manual():


lines <- c("Positive" = "solid", "Negative" = "dotted")

fig1 <- d_posneg %>% # plot `posemo` and `negemo`
  ggplot(mapping = aes(x=year, y=rel_freq, linetype=factor(Indices))) +
  geom_line(alpha=1, size=0.7) +
  theme_classic() +
  scale_linetype_manual(values=lines, name="Indices", labels=c("Positive Emotion", "Negative Emotion")) +
  labs(x="Year", y="Positive Emotion and Negative Emotion Index") +
  scale_x_continuous(breaks=seq(1970,2017,2)) +
  expand_limits(y=1.5) +
  scale_y_continuous(breaks=seq(0.0,3, 0.1)) +
  theme(axis.text.x=element_text(angle=45, hjust=1)) +
  theme(legend.position=c(0.15,0.75))
print(fig1)
