Distutils and scripts in a non standard place

Andrew Wilkinson
Posts: n/a

I've have some example scripts that I'd like to install under /usr/share
along with my documentation. Currently I'm doing this using...
data_files=[("/usr/share/pylinda/examples/", glob.glob("examples/*.py"))] my This doesn't treat them as executable scripts however and
as such doesn't modify the #! line nor does it mark them as executable.

Is there anyway of getting distutils to do this without resorting to the
scripts command, which puts them under /usr/bin?

Thanks in advance for any help,
Andrew Wilkinson
