I cannot get pure data to recognize TUIO as objects. I have downloaded the file and have put the folder in external located within the documents folder which is the default. The README of Tuio says:

The TuioClient external comes with its full source code which can be
built under Windows, Mac OS X as well as all Linux or Unix flavors.
In order to compile the external for your platform, type "make"
folloed by "pd_linux", "pd_darwin" or "pd_nt" depending on your platform.
For convenience the Windows and Mac OS X binaries are included.

but i do not understand how to do this? Any help would be lovely!
