sorry for not keeping up appearances in the forum lately. I have been extremely busy.
I have taken extremely well to xubuntu on the eeepc.
Synaptic Package Manager always showed Puredata, pd-zexy and Gem packages, but installing them didn't seem to load in any of the externals, and PD didn't have the GUI niceities of extended. - I had pd vanilla.
So I removed it and added
deb http://apt.puredata.info/releases jaunty main
to my list of sources, but synaptic package manager still didn't care to offer pd-extended for download.
So I used the command
sudo apt-get install pd-extended
and it all installed, lovely.
But synaptic is unaware of this package, and I really wanted to keep a clean system where everything goes through synaptic.
Have I missed something, or was pd-extended never built to deal with synaptic. I thought apt-get and synaptic was one and the same?
