looks like OSC is a single binary library. since the binary doesn't seem to have the same name as the folder (OSC vs. OSCx) you have to make sure you point your search path to .../externals/OSC.
note that Pd 0.48 has built-in OSC objects ([oscformat] and [oscparse]) which you can use together with [netsend -b -u] and [netreceive -b -u] for a pure vanilla solution.

personally, I always use the OSC objects from the "mrpeach"/"osc" library ([packOSC], [unpackOSC] etc.) together with the [udpsend] and [udpreceive] from "iemnet". I've never used OSCx...

Betreff: [PD] getting OSCx library to load correctly in 48.1

hey folks, on a Mac, with 48.1 vanilla and i'm trying to load the OSCx library at startup and not getting anywhere. using this with TouchOSC, which is apparently not compatible with netsend or netreceive, even in UDP mode. everything works smoothly in PurrData but for vanilla 48.1 i have to manually load the OSC-help file and then refresh the object in my patch and then it finds it. 
just curious how library loading of externals is now handled. i have a search path set at /Users/(my username)/Documents/Pd/externals/ but that won't load the library. the startup option might work but so far i haven't figured out the right combination to load the library properly. maybe this one needs embedding as part of the app's Package Contents? in the README file theres also this bit to run it with pd: 
pd -lib OSC OSCx/doc/OSC-help.pd
i think the paths have changed - mine just starts at externals/oscx/ and dumps all the objects in there. at any rate, any help appreciated! i'm definitely not as familiar with configuring startup libraries...
