[PD] Gridflow path / startup & the helpbrowser on multiple systems

OK, I'm confused.

I have the latest versions of Gridflow installed on both Mac OS 10.6 and
Ubuntu 10.4 and I'm having a problem configuring the Ubuntu installation the
way I want it to work (somehow, the Mac installation does exactly what I
need - intended or not - while Ubuntu is being stubborn).

I want to load the Gridglow library only through [import gridflow] (mostly
because it conflicts with [range] which I do use a lot - that's a topic for
a different discusion), but I also want to have the gridflow help files
accesible from the helpbrowser.

Both systems have Pd-extended 0.42.5 installed.

On both systems, I have paths set to .../gridflow/abstractions and
.../gridflow/depricated (this seems to be part of the Gridflow setup?
because I don't remember having set these manually)

On both systems, there is no "gridflow" entry in Startup.

On the Mac, [import gridflow] works.
On Ubuntu, it generates a "can't load library in 'gridflow'" error. I can
only get Gridflow to load if I add the path to it to Startup.

On the Mac, all Gridflow help files show up in the helpbrowser, under a
separate directory.
On Ubuntu, the Gridflow help files do not show up at all.

How do I make the Ubuntu installation behave as if it was a Mac ? :)
