Hi Miller,

it was an installation fault on my side. The binaries of different
distributions got mixed up causing the gui not to work properly.

Concerning the alt-key problem: I use fvwm2 on a linux 2.4.10. With
kde I seem to get alt-n to work (for the number2 object), everything
else fails. It probably has to do with some sort of catching the alt
keys by the window manager before pd sees them. Does anybody know, how
to reconfigure it? Emacs uses the alt key without problems. (I also
have a "Windows" key and a FN key (since it's a laptop) and wouldn't
mind using them if someone points me to the right direction)?
