Missing footprint generator paths on Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS

I noticed that I couldn’t find any generators, so I did a quick reinstall and I’m still not finding any generators.

I checked /usr/share/kicad/scripting/plugins and the generators are present there. However, when I go to the “Footprint Generators” and “Messages” tab I see nothing in the “Search paths:” window. That’s … strange.

Any suggestions for what I missed?
