Default installation prefix in a setup file generated with quickly

Asked by Golnaz Nilieh on 2010-06-19

My python application has a setup file generated with quickly.
when I run setup.py with no arguments for installation prefix, It installs the app in /usr/local, but update_data_directory() function sets data path ( to a non-exsistant folder) in /usr/share, so the app looks for installed files in /usr.
But when I set the installation path using --prefix option, the app will be installed correctly.
Is there any way to set a default installation prefix in the setup.py file, so that InstallAndUpdateDataDirectory() function uses that when no prefix is specified in command line?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for using Quickly, this is rather a bug report and feature request. I don't have any idea right now how to fix that, but I'll try to have a look for 0.6.
