some misunderstanding here I think. layout.fruchterman.reingold does
not create a graph, it calculates the coordinates of the vertices and
returns them in a two-column matrix.

Supply the 'weights' argument to layout.fruchterman.reingold.

Just use the output of layout.fruchterman.reingold. E.g. 'coords' here:

g <- graph.ring(10)
E(g)\$weight <- c(1,2)
str(g, e=T)
# IGRAPH U-W- 10 10 -- Ring graph
# + attr: name (g/c), mutual (g/l), circular (g/l), weight (e/n)
# + edges and their attributes:
#       edge weight
# [1]   1-- 2      1
# [2]   2-- 3      2
# [3]   3-- 4      1
# [4]   4-- 5      2
# [5]   5-- 6      1
# [6]   6-- 7      2
# [7]   7-- 8      1
# [8]   8-- 9      2
# [9]   9--10      1
# [10]  1--10      2

coords <- layout.fruchterman.reingold(g, weights=E(g)\$weight)
plot(g, layout=coords)

Best,
Gabor
