you did install the "pd-aubio" package as well, did you?

once you did that, you will have to load the "aubio" library - and you
must do so before being able to create *any* of the aubio objects.
you can do so by either
- creating an object [aubio]
- adding "aubio" to the list of loaded libraries
- adding "-lib aubio" to the startup flags of Pd (e.g. when running from
the cmdline).

you can also add a [declare -lib aubio] to your patch using the
aubio-objects, but this will only take effect the next time the patch is

also please note, that there is a new upstream for aubio after a few
years: the website, and packages in debian(>=jessie) and
ubuntu(>=trusty) are all about aubio-0.4 - whereas older distros (like
ubuntu-13.10) only have aubio-0.3.2.
you should check the documentation of the package installed, whether the
object in question exists (checking [1] indicates that it does not exist
for this package)
