    @whale-av I can't wait to have a go. Thank you so much for taking the time to go into this for me. I'll look up the versions of the OS and pd when I get home later today in 6 hours or so. I was able to use apt-get to update/upgrade to whatever the currently-approved version of pd is on the Raspberry Pi repository, and as far as the OS, it's just whatever Noobs currently had me install. I realize that's not very informative so I'll check up shortly. Thanks again for your generosity and patience.

    No good here. I was searching for abl_link~ without success in the raspberry pi installation. I downloaded @francis666's version as compiled for stretch lite but at the moment I resemble a small child attempting to wrangle a square block into a round hole. I don't even know where to find the externals folder into which I should fling the compiled .pd object! Unfortunately searching for details on this is full of wrong turns for me. Thanks for trying :) I need to learn more about using GitHub, compiling stuff and where on earth anything is on the Pi. again thanks for trying. I'll have to come back when the dumb is a little less strong in me.

    What might help is something that gives basics on manual installation of objects and libraries for pd-vanilla in the raspberry pi version. I have looked at information for various deprecated methodologies for this on several other platforms, but there's so much out there that isn't helpful that it is rather difficult to get started. I'll keep looking.

    @francis666 thanks, I will try this tonight (Deken wasn't finding a version for my RPi installation & I would be glad not to have to learn to compile it for myself at this time...)

    @whale-av I'll try again, checking my spelling :) .

    Not sure if I was trying the hyphen or underline at the time (I'm away from the pi at the moment). Hopefully it was as dumb as that and it'll be easy...

    Thanks for the assistance and I'll report back in 8-10 hours or so. (I fear I will be doing some headscratching if I have to try to compile it myself.)

    Hi Folks,

    My goal is to install the abl-link~object successfully using Deken.

    With a fresh install of pd on the raspberry pi zero, (used "sudo apt-get install puredata" and took what was given me). I've searched for "abl_link~" in the find externals box. The result is a list of various versions of Deken. I believe the significance of this is that the version of Deken currently installed can't cut it to install abl_link~ for me. I think what I have to do is install a newer version of Deken.

    However, when I start this process off, Deken just downloads the new version of Deken to pi/home and thereafter I'm stuck.

    I've tried searching for answers about how to manually install deken using this file, but unhelpfully the answers I can find all relate to the readme included with deken which talks about some do's and don'ts of manual installation without telling one how to actually go about it, and a lot of the other stuff I've found has been superseded at various points, (all of which is fair enough given that it's a free thing). Can someone point me in the direction of advice about how to manually install deken? Am I just saving it in the wrong place & it'll just work if I bung it in the right directory?

    Thanks for any help, sorry for being dim.

    Andrew
