Oh, I see. No, I wouldn't try reinstalling just yet.
For OSX, you've got a user-local path
~/Library/Pd-l2ork which Purr Data will search by default for externals.
For example, let's assume you have a directory named "lib" that contains a compiled external named "foo.pd_darwin" (among others). Here's how to get a "foo" object to instantiate properly:
- Copy the "lib" directory to
~/Library/Pd-l2ork. You should then have
- Fire up Purr Data.
- Create a new canvas.
- In the new canvas, create a new object.
- In the new object type "lib/foo"
- Instantiate the new object. (E.g., click an empty part of the canvas.)
There are several other ways to do it (like using
[declare]) but that's the easiest for now.
I use lib/foo as an example because the name of the directory in your screenshot has an unfriendly combination of capital and lowercase letters and I don't feel like trying to get them right.
Also I assume either that the binaries you want to load are directly inside that directory, or that you are typing the name of the relevant subdirs when trying to create your external
Hope that helps. Let me know if you still run into problems.
