every once in a while (not sure if this is due to a finger fumbly key combo or what) pd-extended Linux stops getting keyboard entry
so I can't do a Ctrl-E for editing my patches etc
restarting pd doesn't get the kbd back
only restarting the system corrects this problem
anyone else experience this?
I'm also using tcl/tk for some extended functionality like the Max-like object bar
Linux Mint 14 Nadia && Xfce 4.10 on a Lenovo T500 Thinkpad
I'm trying to get the [hid] external working with the Griffin PowerMate on Linux Mint 14 (Nadia)/pd 0.43.4
the help patch doesn't consistently recognize the device (it did once)
and when I click on the hradio button the patch and pd crashes hard
anyone working with the [hid] external on Linux with success? or is it buggy for others as well?
thanks in advance
does anyone know if there is an abstraction or external for a barber-pole type LFO - sometimes also referred to as 'infinite' or 'through zero' LFO?
I see the Shepard Tone generator example in the Pd patches folder but just wanted something I didn't have to hack...
thanks in advance
so I loaded the GrIPD lib
pointed Pd-extended to it in my ~/pd-externals dir
opened the gripd exampled patch
clicked on [open ../gripd/examples/gripd.gpd]
and got the following message in the Pd window:
| GrIPD: v0.1.1 |
| Graphical Interface for Pure Data |
| (C) Copyright 2003 Joseph A. Sarlo |

GrIPD: Using port 3490
GrIPD: Waiting for a connection...
I opened port 3490 in my firewall
so what am I doing wrong here?
thanks in advance!
I've been experiencing some trouble with the array object. I'm including the patch here which has an explanation of what's happening as well as my config.
In short, when I use it as a spectrum analyzer it gives me two spectral displays inside the array window instead of one as expected.
any help is appreciated!
I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 a couple of months ago and had some issues I need help in finding the best way to resolve.
I was using Pd 0.41-4extended and upgraded to Pd 0.42.5-extended when I upgraded Ubuntu
I noticed that the Pd .deb installed a '/usr/lib/pd-extended' directory instead of the old '/usr/lib/pd'
of course the Ubuntu upgrade wiped the '/' partition (I have '/' and '/home' on separate partitions) but everything was left intact on my '/home' partition so all my patches and work files were left untouched in '/home/user/pd-externals' dir
I made sure to backup of my old '/usr/lib/pd/' directory with all my externals and docs
but now when I launch Pd it throws errors saying it can't find my libraries:
cyclone: can't load library
zexy: can't load library
creb: can't load library
cxc: can't load library
list-abs: can't load library
mapping: can't load library
markex: can't load library
maxlib: can't load library
memento: can't load library
mjlib: can't load library
motex: can't load library
oscx: can't load library
pddp: can't load library
pdogg: can't load library
pixeltango: can't load library
pmpd: can't load library
rradical: can't load library
sigpack: can't load library
smlib: can't load library
toxy: can't load library
iemlib: can't load library
unauthorized: can't load library
pan: can't load library
hcs: can't load library
jmmmp: can't load library
ext13: can't load library
ggee: can't load library
flib: can't load library
ekext: can't load library
flatspace: can't load library
so my question is:
what is the best way to migrate all my old libraries, externals and docs?
has anyone else encountered this problem?
and if so, what is the easiest way to deal with this *other* than going in and copying everything over to '/usr/lib'pd-externals/docs/' and '/usr/lib'pd-externals/extras/' dirs?
is it as easy as just changing the paths to a new location?
thanks in advance,
