    We recommend you accept the default install location. Do not choose the path as /usr for the
    Anaconda/Miniconda installation.

    by running conda init?” We recommend “yes”.


    If you enter “no”, then conda will not modify your shell scripts at all.
    In order to initialize after the installation process is done, first run
    source<pathtoconda>/bin/activate and then run condainit.

  11. To control whether or not each shell session has the base environment
    activated or not, run condaconfig--setauto_activate_baseFalse
    . To run conda from anywhere without having the base environment
    activated by default, use condaconfig--setauto_activate_baseFalse.
    This only works if you have run condainit first.


    condainit is available in conda versions 4.6.12 and later.
