Kicad 5.99 Wxpython activation

Hello everyone, I test the v5.99 (Future V6) of Kicad. I will want to use a Replicate_Layout external plug-ins (from the Kicad_Action_Plugins group) specifically adapted to the V5.99. But I get this message:
How to verify KICAD_SCRIPTING_WXPYTHON enabled ?
If you have ideas how to solve my problem, thank you!

There was a similar problem in How to run kicad-action-plugins on KiCad 5.99? but I don’t find an answer.

Hello @eelik Sorry to have duplicate the post can it move to reactivate the other post?

If it’s just for experimentation, have some patience till pcbnew is stable enough and Replicate_Layout plugin is updated, alternatively, embrace python and go on hacking yourself, the 5.99 compatible (and already outdated) version of Replicate_Layout is available here:

If it’s a critical application, I can help you, but then I will need info about your kicad build (Help > About > Copy Version info)

Thank you very much @Miceuz, no, it’s not critical, I moved my 5.1 project to 5.99 for trial, and when I try to watch sympathetic plugins like replace_layout I fall on this message. I download the version of the guitub 5.99_test and here is the version info:

But probably this version is exceeded …
For real need I continue to use V5.1 !

Use the Copy Version Info button in that dialog and then paste from the clipboard. It gives information about the used build flags.

There’s no wxPython problem with it. But the plugin doesn’t work ATM without modification, see my last two posts in (EDIT: my comments in that issue aren’t all up to date, but there are still problems and the plugin doesn’t work.)

Thank you @eelik for the links, for lack of time I made the modification with version 5.1 which I transferred to 5.99. I think this will be adjusted later when the stability of 5.99 is better. Thanks again.
