I posted a more confusingly-worded version of this question in "Tutorials"; apologies if I'm overwhelming anyone.
On my Crunchbang Linux system, I'm trying to install the Hoa and Cream libraries, as spoken so highly of here:
I don't know much about installing libraries, though I've made progress. The problem is, when I [import hoa.library] or [import c.library], many objects from the library load, but some (especially the cool ones - [hoa.grain~] and [hoa.ringmod~], for instance) don't! The classic "... couldn't create" is my only reward.
The same deal with the Cream library... many objects load, many don't. Many parts of a "Help" file won't load!
I'm using PD Extended on a Crunchbang Linux system. Is this a familiar problem?
ps Here's some of my old post, in case I messed up some elementary aspect of library importing:
and I copied the Hoa and Cream libraries into there; I replaced the old
---> hoa.library.pd_linux & cream.library.pd_linux
with the ones which fit my system (PD-extended, Linux 32 bit). I have
/home/pd-externals/HoaLibrary (and Cream)
in my preferences. And I've used both [import] and startup flags to get PD to recognize the libraries.
