Hello, I am able to load a couple of PD externals. I am using Pd 0.46.7 on Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 64-bit. I am using the find externals command under the help menu. I see the directories in my ~pd-externals folder. But when I try and use objects like [counter] that are supposed to be in these externals I get a can"t create error?
I get this message when I start PD
input channels = 2, output channels = 2
