Hi,

I have looked extensively for anyone reporting this problem, let alone a solution and not found one.

On macOS 10.12 (Sierra) pyqt4 will not install with homebrew

This formula either does not compile or function as expected on macOS versions newer than El Capitan due to an upstream incompatibility.

pyqt5 is installed, but electrum doesn't see it and of course says Error: Could not import PyQt4 on Linux systems, you may try 'sudo apt-get install python-qt4'

is it possible to build electrum with pyqt5? or a way to get pyqt4 working?

I don't think it is possible to build with qt5. the code would need to be rewritten for qt5.

For anyone searching for this. The answer to install pyqt4 without homebrew is here: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/258745/install-python-pyqt4-on-macos-10-12-sierra

This can probably be closed, but could a milestone for shifting to pyqt5 be considered?

Stumbled on the same problem, while trying make electrum work for Mac in commandline mode. Any alternative or solutions to this, please reply.

brew install cartr/qt4/pyqt
You may need to uninstall the version you have installed first with brew uninstall pyqt

We're now on PyQt5 so this is not an issue any more.
