Ikiwiki on Debian

Using apt-get I have ikiwiki 3.20190228-1 on an amd64 Buster.

From /home/bob I run:

$ ikiwiki --setup Bob2021.setup --wrappers

and see this error:

"cannot write to /home/bob/Bob2021/.ikiwiki/lockfile: No such file or directory"

Here is the top of that Bob2021. setup file. I hope I have the syntax correct for the userdir tildes


# IkiWiki::Setup::Yaml - YAML formatted setup file
# Setup file for ikiwiki.
# # Passing this to ikiwiki --setup will make ikiwiki generate
# wrappers and build the wiki.
# # Remember to re-run ikiwiki --setup any time you edit this file.
# name of the wiki

Thank you.

stoop so low as to look into my mind) used to tell me that
my mind was like a conjured spirit, that would do mischief
if I did not give it employment.
