Summary0016816: in appimage will not execute
DescriptionThe included script is the incorrect version for 1.5.8.
Steps To Reproduce1. select an image.
2. select Scripts > Scribus Scripts > align_image_in_frame script
3. the execute indicator spins, script does not launch
Additional InformationI downloaded this version from and installed in my home script dir

New Version NOT Using Tkinter
Here I have completely eliminated all aspects of Tkinter.
Instead, you get a valueDialog and enter a 2-letter combination, the first being T, M, or B, and the second L, C, or R. The script allows upper or lower case entries, but if you don't follow this order, or use other letters (for example, either CM or XY), this defaults to top left positioning.
# This version 2014.04.19

This version not using Tkinter works (code attached).
Please include it in the appimage build
TagsNo tags attached.

# This version 2014.04.19
This script will align an image inside a frame to one of 9 possible positions: 
Top left, top center, top right; middle left, middle center, middle right; 
or bottom left, bottom center, bottom right.
Select one or more image frames. Run the script, which asks for your alignment 
choice. Possible legitimate entries are:

and lowercase entries are also legitimate.
There is minimal error checking, in particular no checking for frame type.

Unable to reproduce here. I made tests on both Ubuntu 18.04, on which the AppImage was built, and on Ubuntu 20.04. In both cases, the script provided with the AppImage executes without issue.

just to verify that you tested this appimage: scribus-1.5.8-linux-x86_64_fd6ae2e4aeae65bc980d1297c3dbeb24.AppImage
The py script did not work on any of my 4 ubuntu 20.04 machines, but the code I included did.

I don't know where you got that AppImage from. The official 1.5.8 AppImage can be downloaded here and this is the one I tested:

I downloaded again using your link and everything worked as you said. I must have downloaded a dev version on that did not have the code in it. It has been a while so this is probably what happened.
Thanks for setting me straight and this report can be marked as solved. Sorry for the confusion on my part.
