BOM on Ubuntu 21.04 python not found

With KiCAD 5.99 nightly, I only see two BOM scripts
Both are failing when trying to run them. I can copy the command into the terminal and once I change python to python3 they will run just fine.

Is this a problem on my side or should I log an issue on gitlab?

This is a bug, currently the BOM plugin running system does not support systems where python is called python3.

Some time ago I made a symbolic link on my Linux Mint box for “python”, that links to /usr/bin/python3.

That would be a workaround and certainly one may argue that that’s an issue of ubuntu for not doing that by default.
On the other hand, I do think KiCAD should just work in any case.
I filed an issue in the gitlab:
