I'm on R 4.0.5, RStudio 1.4.1717 and Mac Catalina 10.15.7. I installed miniconda3 in the typical directory, "/opt/miniconda3/bin/python". The python version is 3.9.1. Then I added the following line to my .Rprofile file: Sys.setenv(RETICULATE_PYTHON = "/opt/miniconda3/bin/python"). I've also made sure the reticulate package is up to date.
I can't get anything to work. A simple reticulate::py_config() causes R to crash (I also tried reticulate::repl_python() - same result). I'm not sure what else to do, it seems I have a pretty simple setup and I'm trying to run very simple code. Does anyone have any ideas?
