Hi Guys after i buy the Mac Book 2020 pro i found the PyQt5 lib can't install@python, So i found the way to solve the problem, share you.

Befor start to install PyQt you need install homebrew and python3.9

  • run these command first
brew install pyqt5
echo 'export PATH="/opt/homebrew/opt/qt@5/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zshrc
echo 'export PATH="/opt/homebrew/opt/pyqt@5/5.15.4_1/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zshrc
source ~/.zshrc
  • then move the lib file from homebrew to python lib path
all file move to
/Users/[you account name]/miniforge3/lib/python3.9/site-packages
  • verify
