  1. Ive tried this and continue to get this:

    |Gtk-Message: 15:29:39.918: Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module”
    error: A required dependency ‘pyqt5 (PyQt 5- Qt interface for Python (for Qt version 4.x))’ is still missing.
    error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency.
    error: Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer.

    Even though I did the manual PyQt 5 install and get this:

    Installing collected packages: PyQt5-sip, pyqt5
    Successfully installed PyQt5-sip-4.19.14 pyqt5-5.12

    It still doesn’t work. Any ideas?
