G'day Aniket,

If you were using the native sugar build method, then you are using
HEAD, which contains all patches since 0.113.  Don't try to apply the
patch that Alex pointed out, as it is already applied.

The error message "ImportError: No module named sugar3" is caused by
not installing the Toolkit for Python 2.

Sugar 0.113 requires Python 2.

Toolkit by default installs for Python 3.

You can verify this is the situation by testing the import by hand
using different versions of Python;

python3 -c 'import sugar3'  # expect pass

python2 -c 'import sugar3'  # expect fail

You'll find in configure.ac where the Python version is chosen.


Perhaps that line should allow the caller to specify the version.

What do you think?
