Initiate first build for github-integrated repo

I need advice on how to initiate my intial build.

I have an R package on Git-hub which has been linked to Travis CI with the proper access. I committed a .travis.yml file (simply: language: r) which has been added it to Rbuildignore, but after a subsequent commit nothing happens on Travis.

I am able to manually “Trigger build” on the travis page of the repo (which fails), but I am wondering what is missing for it to occur automatically when I introduce a new commit to github.

You have disabled push builds on your settings.

I knew it was something silly. Thanks!
