Hey all,

I am here in Zaragoza, Spain at the gohan workshop.  I am impressed  
by how many people here are running Debian/Ubuntu.  It was the most  
popular OS at the workshop!  This also made me realize what a mess  
that Pd-extended installer was.  So here is my first attempt to  
rectify the situation, I made a .deb.  Please test it out:


A couple notes:

- it installs into /usr/local so you can have it installed at the  
same time as the "puredata" Debian package

- it should automatically install all dependencies except "liblame0"  
since that is not included in normal Debian (AFAIK)

- it should install a GNOME/KDE menu item in "Sound & Video" with a  
pretty icon, please tell me if that doesn't work

Anyone know how to handle file associations with GNOME?  I would like  
to add that.
