MIDI Controller experiences/suggestions
@lovelovevideo Can your tablet access anything else (files etc.) on the laptop?
There are some "ping" apps for android.... Can the tablet ping the laptop and vice versa?
I just tried between my laptop and phone and it worked straight away (win7)........ I know...... that doesn't help.
The default gateway is the base address of the router that is connected to the internet...... and you don't need the internet.
What are the ip addresses of the laptop and the tablet?
How can I make the audio stop playing by press of a button?
@cdd101 [readsf~] just plays the file from disk from the start to the end........ but you can "pause" it using [switch~] like this............
Open up (right-click open) the control panel and see what the "pause/resume" (pink) button does......
The [line~] object stops the clicks that are caused by [switch~] when the audio processing is turned on and off....
You will need to use the same toggle to start and stop your [metro] (at the same time).
If you really want to just "stop" the track then see the (purple) "stop" button, and connect that to your metro as well........ sending a [0( (zero) to your number box at the output of your [metro] at the same time.........
If you have another problem to solve then upload your patch to the forum, because then it is easier to correct!.......
Pink as RRGGBB / Hex / 0xCC99CC
Pink as RRGGBB / Integer / 13408716
Magic is (-1 -color) so in that case -1 -13408716 equals -13408717.
Pink color is -13408717.
Note that positive number corresponds to indexed colors.
Note that only the 6 MSB of each RGB component are saved.
Don't ask me why. I have no idea.
Notice that it is not really pink, it is rather violet.

@ponnuki I knew I had seen it somewhere.......
If you want to change the gui permanently it will probably (definitely) be easiest to edit the tcl..... (for you only...... not if you share a patch)..........
You already have the pd-gui.tcl file in extended and just need to edit lines 228 - 244..........
You will have to force the re-write of the file..............
In vanilla 0.46 the colour controls seem to have been distributed to other tcl files that are called. You will need to do a "text search inside files" to find them and edit them. In the tcl demo folder there are some "theme" files that seem to be part of the new way of doing this......
But you might be able to copy/paste the lines from extended into the vanilla version of pd-gui.tcl. Make a backup first. I don't know whether the set commands will be interpreted as you wish or even "at all".........
In fact, you can change a lot more than just the colors in the tcl folder so.......... be careful out there!........

@toddak Hello Toddak.......
I will post this here first. Error 51 is (for a mac).........
"51 ENETUNREACH Network is unreachable. A socket operation was attempted to an unreachable network."
So I will try to get the same error in my OSX partition, but it might take a while!.
Googling that error brings up a lot of chat about VPN's...........? are you running one on your home-to-work network?
Are you using "udp" for "netsend" (the -u -b switches I think)?
Do you get the message if you open just Pd........ before you open a patch?
Are you sure you are connected? Check by "pinging" a Pi? Check by pinging the router?
If you link (with a network cable) the "wan" (single rj45 socket) of the Linksys to your home network does that fix the problem.
Has the mac the correct information in the "prefs" netwok page..... Ip, subnet. Gateway that match the router info?
I will email you now so that you can send me as much as you have already found out........, and when I get a chance I will email you a zip of some screenshots of "good" router setup pages for your project....

@toddak Ok....... I just booted in to osx for a moment to check that I can see my Pi from there. It didn't pop up straight away but I could ping it and then it showed up in finder/go/ smb//:
(because I have a samba share/nas running on it).
So the 10.1.1.8 address would be fine, but if you can fix it then maybe make it 10.1.1.101 (for later) and the others 102, 103, 104........... easy to remember!
The 10.50.50.x is a different subnet and your router will think it is somewhere that it can't talk to.....
So leave it as 10.1.1.8 for now and try to ping it from terminal..........
In Utilities / terminal on your mac..
and you should see numbers coming in for how long the pi takes to respond?
Run............. sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/pd-extended ............again in case it is a permissions thing...
BUT its not extended is it......... you will have to google that!
Reboot it maybe ( sudo reboot will do that "softly"...... better than unplugging)...
sorry, off to bed now.

@toddak Ah!......... so I am sorry toddak, but I have a lot of questions......
So you still want to use the touch screens, and as you have a few Pi's you have backup cards so you have managed to get back to where you were before the update disaster? I hope so as that would make me feel much better!
You do not really want to use netsend and netreceive but in fact OSC objects (so you don't need MrPeach....... and a later vanilla will be ok as Alexandros suggested)? However, extended has many useful objects!
You are using an extra Pi as a router and you want to use [netsend] and [netreceive] on that?
I would think you would be better off with a dedicated router. I just bought another wrt54 on ebay for 99 uk pence.
Are you planning to stream audio to these 4 Pi's (in which case you will need extended) or are you just sending osc messages from them, or just receiving osc messages so as to start/stop playback?
I have not managed to make audio streaming to a Pi work reliably yet without occasional dropouts, and the sound will not work well at all unless you give Pd root privileges............. so remember.... for later...
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/pd-extended
For audio on a Pi it should be run headless, so you should drop your touch screens in that case.
If you are using the Pi's with touch screens just to send osc messages you would be better off with some £40 android 7" tablets running TouchOSC (one licence for all of the android devices you own).
If they are receiving Osc to control their local playback then why do they have touch screens. Is it the touch screens that would not work with Jessie, or some other screen?
Jessie is not very different from Wheezy (it is not a huge update) but it is exclusively armhf. If the touch screens are needed and will not work with Jessie then you are stuck with the current wheezy that you have installed.
If you need to stay with armel then on one of your working Pi,s (armel) you should try this http://puredata.info/downloads/pd-extended-rpi version of extended and install pulse audio and the fonts (manually or with an apt-get) first. A lot of information you can find from here http://puredata.info/docs/raspberry-pi/?searchterm=raspberry
But if you have Rpi B2 (or anything other that an A or a Zero) you should really be running an armhf distribution.
