IDR installation help


I am seeking installation assistance. I have tried twice to install IDR.

I first tried python 3 install as instructed in the manual.
I received the following error:

[Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘Library/Python/3.8/site-packages/test-easy-install-53208.write-test’
The installation directory you specified (via –install-dir, –prefix, or the disutils default setting was:
This directory does not currently exist. Please create it and try again, or choose a different installation directory (using the -d or –install-dir option)

Following I realized my python site-packages are in my home directory . /User/myhomedir/Library/Python/3.8/lib/python/site-packages

I added this to my python path and attempted the install again.
This time specifying the prefix python3 install –prefix=/User/myhomedir/Library/Python/3.8/lib/python/site-packages .

The install was again unsuccessful and I got this error
