Using a raspberry pi 3 running Raspbian-jessie.

I have been trying to install python bluez library to use with python 3. Trying the: apt-get install bluez pybluez bluetooth

Installs on python 2.

I've downloaded bluez from https://github.com/karulis/pybluez using: python setup.py install Installs on python 2

I tried: python3 setup.py install

ImportError: No module named 'setuptools'

Am Stumped, can't think of anything else.
