I'm trying to write an application using Quickly.

I'm writing a new Python 3 file in which I import a module installed via pip3 (pystache). However, when I go to quickly package, I get a traceback error:

alex@ubuntu:~/Development/templater$ quickly package
Command returned some ERRORS:
ERROR: Python module pystache not found
Do you want to continue (this is not safe!)? y/[n]: 

How can I ensure that this works, and pystache is picked up by the build system?

At the request of an answer, I've run which python, which returns /usr/bin/python.

Do you have another version of Python installed? That is my guess so when you installed the module it was set to work with say Python 2.7.

Type this in the terminal. I will tell you what python version it recognizes.

which python

For python3.2 (on my system), it would say usr/bin/python3.2.

If you see usr/bin/python, then the modules are being synced to python 2.7 or whatever the standard version is installed.

Is this an attempt to answer the question? If so, I recommend expanding this to explain what you're recommending the OP do. – Eliah Kagan Apr 7 '13 at 21:25
@dustin: i'm trying to use python 3. when i installed the module i used pip3, not pip. at the top of my custom python script i have #!/usr/bin/python3, not #!/usr/bin/python. – strugee Apr 8 '13 at 20:32
@strugee the shebang line should be #!/usr/bin/env python3 – dustin Apr 8 '13 at 21:08
@dustin i made that change. still getting errors. – strugee Apr 9 '13 at 22:38
@strugee are you opening a new file and doing import pystache and then getting errors? You might want to think about asking this question on stackoverflow since it is programming not Ubuntu. – dustin Apr 9 '13 at 22:43
