I guess, you must set the search_path to the correct schema. A little
example:

test=> create schema foo;
CREATE SCHEMA
test=> create table foo.footest (id int);
CREATE TABLE
test=> \d footest
Did not find any relation named "footest".
-- the schema foo is not in the search_path
-- you must specify the path
test=> \d foo.footest
     Table "foo.footest"
 Column |  Type   | Modifiers
--------+---------+-----------
 id     | integer |


-- now i set the search_path
test=> set search_path=foo,public;
SET

-- and now i have the schema foo in my search_path
test=> \d footest
     Table "foo.footest"
 Column |  Type   | Modifiers
--------+---------+-----------
 id     | integer |
