[PD] pdj - problems installing

Hmmm... I have not used pdj recently, but on my system the pd path had
to be set to the "dist" directory of the pdj package.  This is where
pdj.pd_linux is located, too.  I am stuck on version 0.8.6, however,
YYMV.  Keep in mind that pd's search path is not recursive.  However,
on my system, the help class is instantiated by [pdj help_class] (note
the underscore).

in pdj.properties, the only thing you will want to set is
pdj.classes-dir to the place where you intend to store your java
source code, especially if you keep the pdj directory (and therefore
its classes directory) in some place not accessible by a normal user
(as is your case right now).

On the other hand, why not simply set pd path to the pdj/dist
directory rather than copying it to /usr/lib/pd/extra?

Hope some of this helps.
