If you want to install `buckygen`

within Sage, you should first do this from a terminal:

```
sage -i buckygen
```

Then, `buckygen`

is not a Python module, but a C program, hence you can not import it directly, you have to write some kind of interface if you want to interact directly with it. An example is given by the `fullerenes`

graph generator, source code which you can get by typing:

```
sage: graphs.fullerenes??
```

Or currently looking here (this precise link might not last a long time): http://git.sagemath.org/sage.git/tree...

Could you elaborate a bit more? What did you try?
