This is probably a dumb question but I can't work it out nor find an answer anywhere else, so... yeah, I'm new to pd. Using pd 0.40.3-extended on Mac os x 10.5 at the moment and like I say on the subject while working through the examples the gemwin_control object works but when I try to use it on a new patch it is not available.
Thanks for any input
What are exactly your problems on your ubuntu installation?
What happens if you run pd from a terminal?
What messages do you get if you run pd in verbose mode?
If you want to have pd in your menu right click the main menu icon on the top left hand corner and select edit menus. Navigate to the section where you want to have pd and add it there.
I remember having trouble with pd on ubuntu for lack of codecs and for having some video components installed with default parameters.
I did compile some of them myself and that helped quite a lot.
Again I'm sorry to be so vague but this was a while a go and I didn't document the process.
hope this is of help
I installed pd-extended on Ubuntu 8.04, following the instructions here: http://en.flossmanuals.net/PureData/InstallingUbuntu ... but what they suggest doesn't work:
Since "feisty" is a pretty old release, the archive is no longer available... so you gotta use the "old-releases" i think:
I hope this helps somehow. pd-extended has all the good stuff installed, unlike pd-vanilla.
He is on 8.10 though, Intrepid, not feisty.
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK
You could try adding these repositories to your etc/apt/sources.lst :
And then install pd-extended from synaptic.
I did and it is working much better now, not perfect but it is usable.
I've been trying to find where I got this info from but can't seem to find it, otherwise I'd give you the links to it.
I got this from the pd mailing list. I haven't been able to make it work yet, but maybe you can:
in the svn repository for pd externals you'll find this lib
it's a bit tricky to compile (see a previous discussion on this list with IOhannes)
tar xzf dmx4linux-2.6.1.tar.gz
cp dmx4linux2.6.1.patch dmx4linux-2.6.1
patch -p1 < dmx4linux2.6.1.patch
and the usual
sudo make install
then compiling the extension
you might also want to try
if you know a bit of python it will be easier
it worked pretty fine for me on debian/ubuntu systems
I don't know what platform you guys are on.
The first option did not compile for me on ubuntu 8.10 32 bit.
The second option worked (I could run the python scripts) but for some reason I could not create the OSC object on pd.
Report back here if you get it working.
New to PD, first post on the forum...
...and yes, using pd on ubuntu, 8.10 64 bit.
