When I attempt to use quickly package --verbose --extras on my application I get these errors at the end:

sed -i "s|__soundboard_data_directory__ =.*|__soundboard_data_directory__ = '/opt/'|" debian/soundboard/opt/*/
sed: can't read debian/soundboard/opt/*/ No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [override_dh_install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/pablo/soundboard'
make: *** [binary] Error 2
dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2

I haven't a clue what is wrong here. When I run package --extras on a clean template it runs fine. is an unmodified the template makes. I'm not sure if my full source code is needed for this or not, but can be provided.

EDIT: Forgot to mention quickly package creates a working package, only --extras fails.
