Hi! I bet someone has asked this before, but i couldnt find it. sorry to beat a dead donkey.
I recently made the swtch to linux, running ubuntu 10.10, and I installed pd vanilla from the ubuntu software center and then installed the libraries from the synaptic package manager. I did this because pd-extended does not seem to come directly from the software center, even from the link on the pd website.
The library externals seem to work but only after I open the help file from the browser for the appropriate object that I want to use, extremely frustrating. Its like I have to remind pd that it knows where my externals are one by one.
Does anyone know a way to have it find all the library files on startup, like the correct path where the external libraries are found?
thanks for holding the linux noobs hand
