Hi Matteo,

I'm not sure I managed to follow all the passages you made anyway...

I managed to install Pd-extended (0.42.5-extended-20100601) on lucid (32 
bit) doing the followng:

- Downloaded the autobuild here: 
- Try to install the deb BUT (re)-discovered the font dependency problem 
(already there since karmic... wish I kept a memo of all this stuff :) )
- Install vera font deb from Jaunty .deb package
- Try again to install the deb. This time all went well.

It seems to run pretty well and didn't give me any problem till now.

In case, feel free to ask more if I can help you.
