It is not clear how they installed Pd[extended]. Did they download a 
.deb file or did they install it straight from synaptic or the 'software 

In the latter case latter chances are they actually installed Pd 
'vanilla' and not pd-extended: in fact AFAIK pd-extended is not present 
in the ubuntu repositories. This would explain why they get no extra 
stuff. If this is the case they can get stable .deb package for all 
recent versions of ubuntu here: http://puredata.info/downloads (be sure 
to get pd-extended!) or autobuilds here: 

Hope this helps.
