The problem is that on OSX programs launched from the aqua interface  
do not read the files like .profile to get environment variables --  
those are only available to programs launched via a shell.  There is,  
however, a file that provides this sort of info for aqua interfaces.   
It is

It probably doesn't exist, so you'll need to make it.  I've pasted  
the contents of mine below.  Just change the directory to reflect  
your csound install and you should be set.  (oh, and log out and log  
back in for the changes to take effect)

Hi List,

After checking the archives, I just wanted to follow up to see if  
anyone had figured out how to set environment variables from within a  
patcher to point to Csound's OPCODEDIR or OPCODEDIR64 (for double  

Consistent with the archived posts, I am able to load all opcodes  
that are in Csound's libcsound.a, but all external .dylib modules  
don't seem to be loaded.

I'm using Miller's latest 0.39 Pd.app distribution. I have all  
opcode .dylib's in /Applications/Pd.app/Contents/Resources/bin/ 
*.dylib ... has anyone been able to load external modules within  
csoundapi~ for Pd ??? What's the trick ?
