Bug Description

With version 5.1.5-2 when I try to generate BOM file with Python plugin (I use "bom_csv_grouped_by_value"), KiCAD will return the follow error message:

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
Fatal Python error: initfsencoding: unable to load the file system codec
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'encodings'

Current thread 0x00001398 (most recent call first):

If I uninstall this version and reinstall the old one (5.1.4_1) the BOM generation works correctly.
