This question already has an answer here:

I have a Python 3.2 script that I'd like to package for Ubuntu and Debian. I've certainly looked for documentation but I wasn't sure that I was getting the latest and greatest/easiest methods.

If someone with enough knowledge could please point me to the most recent guide on how to do this, it would be very useful to me.

Additionally, given a bit of what I have seen I might need a setup.py file too? If so I need to learn about that too.

The Ubuntu developer portal has a very complete Packaging Guide.

There is also a tool, Quickly, designed to help new developers hack and package their applications easily and... quickly. This tool will also help you creating the setup.py script.

Finally, take a look at how to get started at Ubuntu application development.
