I added pd-overlay from layman, and have installed the following:

With a few tricks, a working alsa/timidity++/puredata chain was set up
and running, to reference for other newcomers:
pdextended -alsa -alsamidi -stderr -verbose -d (config at pastebin:
The following files were installed to my system: (filelist with paths:
Now, wanted to install Androidome's script,
Multiple errors came about missing functions (like mrpeach/udpsend),
and in the UI they were outlined in red.
Also the debug log shown that search under multiple paths (none
was failed for that functions.
Looks like http://email@example.com/msg04901.html,
but checks more paths.

... you might be able to track this down from the Find menu.
Which declare's should be added to ~/.pdextended to allow search in
Also it seems that
http://docs.monome.org/doku.php?id=dev:pd:simple_mlr uses an old
version of OSC,
functions names in code are like dumpOSC -> OSCdump ; how to run the
script at the link below with
0.42.5, can anyone tell here? (will also bug monome's list).
P.S. Why the article at gentoo wiki told me to remove oscx from build?
Is there a reason for such thing to exist behind that article?
don't forget to do awesome stuff next days, it's the last days of the
year after all.
