sorry for the double forum post, just starting a new thread for clarity.
I'm trying to use a USB joystick with pure data on my headless Raspberry Pi. I've got the patch working on my laptop just fine.
I've installed the pd-hid external on my Raspberry Pi, but the joystick doesn't do anything in the patch. The external loads when I start up Pd, but I don't get any input information from the joystick into Pd.
One theory I have is that the version of [hid] is different on the Raspberry Pi repo vs. Deken? On Raspberry Pi it is says:
[hid] 0.7, written by Hans-Christoph Steiner <firstname.lastname@example.org> compiled for Debian on 2022/12/07 at 09:43:35 UTC```
Whereas the version on Deken is "hidv0.1.0.dek".
Could these be different? Or is there something else entirely that I'm missing?
