Let's try again. Having a Python project, and a kit defined for the
remote Linux device, from the Run Settings page I select "Deploy to
Remote Linux Host" but I found no way the list of files under "Files
to deploy" got populated.
So with an empty list, the rsync step to deploy files to remote device
does nothing and then the step to run remote custom executable "python
main.py" fails because the Python file(s) were never copied there.

Thanks for the reply.
