I know the recommendation is to use the Pi-Top OS, but I’m quite fond of Raspbian. I normally follow the article on the Pi-Top KB to get the drivers to work. https://knowledgebase.pi-top.com/knowledge/pi-top-and-raspberry-pi-os
I recently attempted to reconfigure my PiTop from Buster to Bullseye and it seems there is a problem with pt-sys-oled and pt-firmware-updater. I tried two times with a fresh image and the result is the same. As far as I can tell, it needs python 3.7, but Bullseye comes with python 3.9. I tried to uninstall python and reinstall 3.7 but it won’t install. Downgrading python also seems to break the Raspbian desktop.
Please see the result below:

It seems that sudo apt install --no-install-recommends -y pt-device-manager works without errors and after reboot the battery monitor works, but nothing else. If I try cd /usr/lib/pt-device-manager sudo ./pt-device-manager then I get the following:

Are there any known compatibility issues with Python3.9 or Raspbian Bullseye, or does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks in advance!
