I'm trying to get started with Qiskit but the installation process has been horrendous and the official instructions are unusable. The latest python doesnt work with the install instructions at: https://qiskit.org/documentation/install.html (qiskit devs lurking here: can you please update the instructions on the official website or atleast add links to fixes for known issues for novices like me?)
qiskit-aer didnt install until I deprecated python to 3.8 for the qiskit env via: conda create -n name_of_my_env python=3.8
Then, the jupyter notebook didn't recognize the new environment until I tried: python -m ipykernel install --user --name myenv --display-name "Python (myenv)"
Now, the jupyter notebook in the qiskit env wouldnt connect to the kernel and I'm not sure what to do. The error message I get on the jupyter nb is: A connection to the notebook server could not be established. The notebook will continue trying to reconnect. Check your network connection or notebook server configuration.
I'm not a software engineer and I'm getting tired of poking randomly on the internet for hours with error messages I don't understand. Suggestions on how I can get jupyter nb in qiskit env to connect to the kernel? Should I expect more such software nuisance with qiskit?
