    Does Python Scripting work on Linux or not?

    v4.21.1 compiled from source

    Basically, enabling the plugin and enabling it in the project appears to have no effect -- python isn't listed as a scripting choice in that drop down, the python menu entries under File never show up, etc.

    The ./GenerateProjectFiles.sh script run on Ubuntu seems to set WITH_PYTHON=0 in the *.pri files . Even if i modify those files with WITH_PYTHON=1, it doesn't enable the python functionality.

    I'm guessing that WITH_PYTHON=0 or WITH_PYTHON=1 comes from Engine/Source/ThirdParty/Python/Python.Build.cs:
    Reading through that code i had some doubts it would work on Linux's typical path/include setup for python.

    Does someone have this working?

    thanks,
    Adam

    It does, but not out-of-the box in 4.21 (you'd have to modify Python.Build.cs). We're currently aiming to have Python working out-of-the-box on Linux for 4.22.

      so is it out-of-the-box on 4.22? I haven't seen it mentioned in release notes. Is there documentation as to the Python.Build.cs change required?

        Yeah, we added the Python SDK for Mac and Linux for 4.22.
