We are aware that tkwant is not available for Python 3.8 on conda-forge.
Unfortunately, as far as I understand, the underlying problem is beyond our control.

So, in other words, you installed tkwant in Python environment A and then you were surprised not to find it in Python environment B. Perhaps this can be seen as a design issue of Python virtual environments, or of Jupyter, but it's certainly not a problem specific to Tkwant or Kwant.
No, I installed tkwant in Python environment B, and launching jupyter notebook with environment B activated did not really use environment B but was keeping the environment A.
Thus tkwant was not found.
This is indeed a problem from python, but adding the last line I suggest wouldn't change anything for users that don't obtain the issue, and would solve the one I had because of Python and Jupyter notebook.
Hoping this will be added on your website.
In my opinion listing possible generic problems that one may encounter when using Tkwant is beyond the scope of our web site. I think that this would render the instructions less useful by overloading them.
This means I do not ask you to make a generic problems listing, but simply add a command line in your installation tutorial.
