i'm confused (already). i have installed pd on osx10.3 and can see the icon in applications but when i click on it nothing happens any suggestions.
Help a newbie
try starting it from the terminal.
open a terminal, and goto the apps directory ( "cd /applications")
..and then run puredata ( "./pd")
if you want a clickable icon you've got to write a script .
I've tried starting it from Wish Shell and also from Terminal but i keep getting command errors. I was hoping pd might be something i could augment my max/msp with but it does seem more like line command programming. Also the installed folders for pd seem to be dispersed throughout my applications folder is this also common or should i move them all into one directory?
yeah - i had alot of those problems and almost gave up but recently found a version of Pd that comes with an installer (no need to mess with terminals!) made by Hans Christoph-Steiner - availible on his page at:
it seems to be working great on my machine. hope that helps..
That's just what i needed.
