Setup miniconda with reticulate for M1 Macbook Pro


I was trying to set up python in my Rstudio. I followed all the steps from this tutorial:

Everything worked until I typed reticulate::py_config(), which gives me the following error instead of showing the python version 3.x like the video.

Error in py_initialize(config$python, config$libpython, config$pythonhome, :
/opt/miniconda3/lib/libpython3.8.dylib - dlopen(/opt/miniconda3/lib/libpython3.8.dylib, 10): no suitable image found. Did find:
/opt/miniconda3/lib/libpython3.8.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
/opt/miniconda3/lib/libpython3.8.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture

I also tried miniconda 3.9 and it also gave a similar error.

Is this the problem for M1 Macbook only? Please help!! Thank you so much!
