I'm new with pure data and I want help. I'm on Ubuntu 16.04LTS and PD is 0.46.7. All library are installed via synaptic.
On the first page of PD I have this message : list2symbol ...could't create.
I go on this page http://blazicek.net/list_of_pure_data_objects.html
and I see that list2symbol is in ZEXY. ZEXY is installed and I see in the folder /usr/lib/pd/extra/zexy the list of objects. For list2symbol I see only list2symbol-help but not list2symbol It's the same for makesymbol, matchbox, limiter, lifop ... and many more but not all. Why?
I reinstalled ZEXY but it's the same problem.! I put a screenshot of the folder of ZEXY. In blue it's OK and in red it's the problem.
Sorry for my bad english
Thank you for your help
zexy problem list objects
@protein-kyn The zexy objects are not patches. The help file is a patch, and will have the ".pd" extension.
The zexy objects will be "list2symbol.dll" in windows........ and probably "list2symbol.pd_linux" on your computer.
You might not even find "list2symbol.pd_linux" because all the zexy objects might be built into a "multi object" called "zexy.pd_linux".
Look at the end of the page ..... https://git.iem.at/pd/zexy........ "making pd run with the zexy external::".
You might need to "declare the library"..... "zexy" at startup if it is a "multi object"...... because it will need to be exploded into all the "single objects" every time Pd is started.
Open in the Pd Terminal window..... "Edit" "Preferences" "startup".
At the bottom in the "Startup Flags" box type..... -lib zexy ... and then press OK.
The "paths" to files are a problem in Pure Data. When objects cannot be created it is often because Pd cannot find them.
If "-lib zexy" does not work you will need to put .... -lib path/to/zexy/folder/zexy
I hope that makes sense.
Sorry but I have problems with ggee and iemlib I have this message : can't load library. I load in startup and in paths ggee and iemlib but it's not OK. Why?
