quoting GEM.README:
- 'you could just try "pd -lib Gem"'
- 'NOTE: there *must not* be any file extension with the "-lib"-flag: 
"pd -lib Gem.dll" will miserably fail'

quoting README.linux
- "To test Gem (you need to have pd installed): #> pd -lib Gem"

so you see: skip the extension (in your case: .pd_linux)
