I'm building an application that uses tweepy (a python library) and when I build it on my local machine it works fine. When I submit it to launchpad though, it sent me a log which has this error: ERROR: Python module tweepy not found.

I found a ppa python-tweepy on Launchpad.

So how do I fix this error.

The log from Launchpad is here.

You should add the tweepy PPA as dependency for your PPA (you can do this from the Launchpad web interface for your PPA), and add python-tweepy as a build dependency in your package.

Where is your source package? Is tweepy actually in the list of build dependencies? – jelmer Jul 6 '12 at 14:32
You can try adding tweepy to the control file in your debian folder of your application, in the build dependencies section. – Jobi Carter Jul 6 '12 at 21:16
