My goal is to install the abl-link~object successfully using Deken.
With a fresh install of pd on the raspberry pi zero, (used "sudo apt-get install puredata" and took what was given me). I've searched for "abl_link~" in the find externals box. The result is a list of various versions of Deken. I believe the significance of this is that the version of Deken currently installed can't cut it to install abl_link~ for me. I think what I have to do is install a newer version of Deken.
However, when I start this process off, Deken just downloads the new version of Deken to pi/home and thereafter I'm stuck.
I've tried searching for answers about how to manually install deken using this file, but unhelpfully the answers I can find all relate to the readme included with deken which talks about some do's and don'ts of manual installation without telling one how to actually go about it, and a lot of the other stuff I've found has been superseded at various points, (all of which is fair enough given that it's a free thing). Can someone point me in the direction of advice about how to manually install deken? Am I just saving it in the wrong place & it'll just work if I bung it in the right directory?
Thanks for any help, sorry for being dim.
