    @MeneerJansen Midi is not my thing, so someone might well post the established solution...... but this will do it...... this.pd

    @RCarl Seems to have been obliterated.
    I you search for randio.it on the wayback machine you can read about it, but links are dead as the website is a dodo.
    There is an email address....... randio@autoproduzioni.net
    But you will have more luck asking https://twitter.com/fabio_iaci directly.....

    @Jona Miller mentions alternative anonymous access in the help file...... so maybe it will magically appear?

    @Jona Bizarre...... for me all messages are received by both........ happy.zip
    but yes....... @ingox..... multiply defined with get.
    Does it matter as they will always be the same?
    Not a question that Shakespeare would have asked but....?

    @Jona I expected "multiply defined" but in 049 in win7 I get no complaints.

    @Jona Yes, it must be.
    Is the problem updating it or something else, or are you just hoping for a neater solution?
    I remember now.... the previous problem was the array not saving more than 100 floats...... so the solution was to copy in the other direction.

    [array define] is just a slightly better [table] so it is designed to be hidden.
    Any size or reset, or read message (and probably others) that you send into [array define] can also be sent at the same time to an array (showing as a GOP) and will be understood....... and it can have the same name...... so if you use a message like
    [;
    myarray read file.txt, resize 30(
    then both arrays will receive it and be modified,

    @Jona Might be. I will spend some time looking.
    We discussed something similar before I think, and copying the array object contents to a graphical array (table) was the solution.

    @Jona Everything is all over the place in Vanilla.
    [text define] takes the message [click( to open it and [close( to close it.
    [array define] takes [map 1( to open it BUT you get a consistency check error.
    [map 0( hides the array but does not close the window.

    BUT, it takes the message [click( with ye olde undocumented arguments message to pd...... so....
    [click 200 100 0 1 0( will open it without error.
    More messages [mouseup( [click( etc. will write to the array.....

    @zingiskahn Find your Pd main folder....... then open the "po" sub-folder and remame "de.msg" to something else like "de.bak".
    You can then get german back if you ever need to.

    @StudentScaredOfDebt You mean your patches?
    If you have made some and just clicked save without changing directory they are probably in the Pd/bin folder.
    If they are not there, then open Pd...... open your patch...... and go to the topmenubar and click "File" "save as" and the os window that opens should show where you have been saving them.
    Otherwise...... windows search tool...... open file location...?

    @Nobody If you know where the Pd you want is then I think (I don't use Mint but I have a RPI... also Unix) you can right click the shortcut and open it with a text editor and see something like this.....
    Capture.JPG
    and change the Path= and Exec
    You should probably change the Icon=
    as well.
    Exec= should probably be........ Exec= Pd
    There will be more help on the web for what it all means.
    Just seen @ingox post and you can ignore mine probably.

    @pharaohtut22 The extra folder is at Pd/extra.
    Usually every folder in the extra folder is "seen" by Pd, but if it is not then go to the top menu of Pd terminal, either File or Edit (sometimes different in different versions) Preferences >> Path.
    Put the path to the folder in there.
    Any folder anywhere can be found once it is in that list...... and probably sub-folders too.

    @blzblz Check the help file for [gemhead]
    The order of rendering controls what is "on top".

    @Nobody You probably already have it in your Pd Vanilla install, and it finds externals when you open "Help" in the Pd top menubar and then "Find Externals" and then either you type in a search word or you click the "Find All" Button.

    @pharaohtut22 GEM is the graphics external library and it looks as though you have it already.
    Impossible to say which other libraries you might need.......
    If you want to do multimedia stuff then download and read this........ https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/12033/multimedia-programming-with-pure-data
    It will tell you just about all you need to know.
    And download this..... https://puredata.info/downloads/extended-view-toolkit..... which contains some serious tools built by some of the best in the field.
    You can try the "Ofelia" library too, if it is available through Deken.
    It might have a steeper learning curve than GEM...... but looks pretty useful.

    @pharaohtut22 I am not a Linux user, but it looks like it has started Vanilla.
    Now that you have the Deken PlugIn you can go and look for the external libraries using Help / Find externals again.
    Click the "Find All" button.
    You will probably need at least......
    zexy
    cyclone
    comport
    iemlib
    mrpeach
    list-abs

    Make sure you chose the right ones...... 32bit if you have 32bit Pd...... 64bit otherwise.
    They will all be added to the Pd/extra folder.
    Anything that is put in the extra folder will be found by Pd as it starts, so you can simply add those 2 files to the extra folder.

    If other objects are missing as you work then post again and someone will tell you which library you will need.
    Or if you have plenty of storage then install them all when you have some spare time.
    There could still be something missing.
    Often someone has made an abstraction to do the same thing...... if you are lucky.....:expressionless:

    @pharaohtut22 There are instructions here....... http://puredata.info/docs/faq/debian ...... about half way down the page.
    If you don't succeed you could install vanilla and use Deken........ it is in the Pd menu under help / find externals..... to get most of the externals. There would maybe be things missing, but often they are just abstractions and someone will upload them for you if you make a list of what you need and ask for them on this forum.
    Here are your two objects..... here.zip
    They are both abstractions..... so will run in any flavour of Pd.

    @StudentScaredOfDebt Yes, I use windows on a mac. I think it's the Mac camera causing my problems.
    Chapter 5 (and onwards maybe) will tell you all you need to know.
    I recommend saving a copy of the PDF on your computer....... it has disappeared from the web in the past.

    @StudentScaredOfDebt
    Do you need to produce a patch for your exam?
    Read this....... chapter5..... even if you cannot yet get your camera working...
    https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/12033/multimedia-programming-with-pure-data
    It should get you through your exam.

    @dbts There will be many ways to do this.
    Put this between your incoming midi and your midi note....... chop-suey.pd
    Or you could use the [expr] object...
    or.....

    It can be used as an abstraction...... so used many times...... and could be given arguments ($ values) so as to produce different results.
    Have a look at this...... https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/9774/pure-data-noob/4....read the text before playing with the patch...... and you will quickly get an idea of how abstractions help you to work faster and to keep your patches tidy and easy to read.......
