Dear YJ Lee,

I recently updated my software into macOs Catalina 10.15.4 and R from 3.5.1 into R version 3.6.3 (2020-02-29) -- "Holding the Windsock"Copyright (C) 2020 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing, Platform: x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0 (64-bit), BUT i faces some difficulties installing bear again.
I followed your instructions in the post below, some steps went well but some gave an error message as follows:

» In summary, you will need Xcode (done) and Xcode command line tool (done) and MacPorts (done). Download and install. Go to CRAN mirror to download RGtk2 (done) and cairoDevice source tarballs (*.tar.gz) (done). Put these two tar ball files under your working directory (done). And open a terminal type
» $ export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH ###done
» $ sudo port selfupdate                             ###done
» $ sudo port install pkgconfig                      ###done
» $ sudo port install gtk2 +x11                      ### <- this is extremely important.

Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage
for which he himself was responsible.
Nonage is the inability to use one’s own intellect
without the direction of another.    Immanuel Kant
