[SOLVED] No Python scripting console in nightlies?

In recent nightlies the scripting console does not work. (Windows 11).
Is that intentional ?

When building locally, the console works and so does 6.0.7.

Same on Linux 22.04 daily compile off master for quite some time now.

Yes, Nightlies has no python scripting. But I think some things can be done to walk around that problem as I’ve seen on a post similar to this on around forum.

Copying “C:\Program Files\KiCad\6.0\share\kicad\scripting” into the nightly directory and setting PYTHONPATH to “C:\Program Files\KiCad\6.99\share\kicad\scripting” did the trick.

[EDIT] Which obviously requires having 6.0.x installed as well, which is no problem. Just a fat download.
