mod-script-pipe is missing, can't use scripting API

I’m using the Audacity AppImage in version Audacity 3.0.5 on my Linux machine which runs Fedora 34 x64 with Wayland.
Following these instructions I was trying to enable the python scripting interface to control Audacity form a Python script, but as you can see the module is missing. In fact all modules are missing:
Can anyone please help me to fix that?

The version of Audacity provided through Fedora’s repositories has a bug preventing me from doing 18-Channel multi-track recordings, thus I have to use the AppImage.

Unfortunately the AppImage version of Audacity does not yet support mod-script-pipe.
I’ve logged the issue here:

The only workaround that I can think of is to build Audacity from the source code (or wait for a suitable version of Audacity to be released).
Instructions for building Audacity are here:

I have the same issue as the OP - with Audacity 3.1.3 on Kubuntu 20.04.

The github issue has been closed as of 29 Jan, but I can’t be sure whether that means it’s supposed to have been fixed in some upcoming release. (3.1.3 came out before that, correct?)

Would I be correct in assuming that it’s still an issue with appimage 3.1.3, but could be fixed in 3.2?


Release date for Audacity 3.1.3 was 23 Dec 2021
The fix was committed on Jan 26th

I hope so :wink:

I shall radiate hope!
