i ve been stuck with a very frustrating problem since a few days. A friend of mine gave me a pretty nice laptop that she's not using anymore, and i m trying to configure it for real time use of Pd. So i have ubuntu 8.04 installed, with the rt kernel and stuff, and it's all working pretty well, except for one thing : hid. And i badly need hid in my patches.
The thing is that Pd basically won't recognize any input device (not even the touchpad) unless i run it as root (sudo pd).
Now, i m pretty sure that something needs to be edited in a .conf file somewhere, but can't remember where. I know there is something about it in Google, since i have fixed the same problem a few months ago (yes i know, i should have taken notes).
I badly need any help!
