[ndnSIM] How to use Pyviz visualizer

Did you follow all the instructions on the website in getting started section, especially the one marked "if you want visualizer"?   Visualizer is quite finnky and can be hard to make it work.  Pitfalls sometimes relate to version of Python (do you have 2 and 3 installed?); you may need to install dependencies using apt or pip (easy_install).  It is, honestly, a trial and error approach.  I think the latest I tried with Ubuntu 20.04 and list of what needs to be installed listed there, but things may be already outdated...  On 18.04, with my latest trial a few days ago, something else needs to be installed, but I didn't have a chance to explore what exactly.
