I've installed ubuntu 10.10 on my netbook, and on top of that the
audio packages from ubuntustudio. This is working well. For Pd,
however, I *think* what I have is a vanilla installation, rather than
extended, which I would like. In Synapctic Package Manager I can see I
have puredata 0.42.6-1build1 plus a version of gem, but I can't seem
to see anything in Synaptic which looks like Pd extended. Do I have to
add a software source or something?

Alternatively, on http://puredata.info/downloads I see a link to:


Should I download that instead? Should I remove the existing installation?

(Please excuse the perhaps slightly naive 'now-click-here' tone of
this question: it's deliberate. So far I've managed to get this
machine installed and running the way I want it without using the
terminal once, just coming at it like I would on the mac or pc. I'm
trying to keep going on ubuntu sticking to this policy, partly just to
prove whether or not it can be done...)
