According to the Ubuntu App Showdown Rules (http://developer.ubuntu.com/showdown/rules/), "Quickly installs your app to /opt for you when you run quickly submitubuntu." However there's nothing in the /opt directory after running "quickly submitubuntu". What can I do?

Edit: result of running "quickly submitubuntu"

Launchpad connection is ok

Calling GPG to create tarball signature...
indicator-launchertoggle 12.06.3 released and submitted to ubuntu. Wait for half an hour and have look at https://launchpad.net/~napdivad/+archive/ppa.
Then your application will be reviewed by the application review board.

Before running quickly submitubuntu, you should: create your account and a project page on launchpad.net. You also have to add a PPA to your launchpad account. was that done and what was the result of quickly submitubuntu –  damien Jun 25 '12 at 10:39

You need to run quickly package --extras in order to get the packaging files to target /opt.

The quickly submitubuntu command will create a package that installs in /opt and will upload it to a public PPA of your choice in Launchpad.

You will then need to install that package, which is the step you are missing.

Maybe quickly automatically configures the deb to install in /opt, but doesn't actually install it in /opt.
