the documentation of PdX in manuals/Pd/ReadMe.html still says that externals should be globally installed into "/usr/share/pd-externals".

however, PdX actually searches does not search /usr/share/pd-externals (as this would violate the FHS) and instead uses "/usr/local/lib/pd-externals" (which is FHS compliant and is documented at http://puredata.info/docs/faq/how-do-i-install-externals-and-help-files-with-pd-extended/\)

  • i would fix this myself if i could only find the documentation in the svn...

     
  • Yeah, its carefully hidden in packages/Makefile, where its generated ;) I suppose that's kind of silly but its been like that for years.

    Fixed in commit 11736
