Pd uses a network connection between it's GUI and the core (which is
doing all the fancy stuff).
so you need at least "some" networking (though no internet)
also, for initiating the connection between the two processes, the
system might need to resolve "localhost" to an IP address. probably this
alternatively, the system might hardcode the localhost IP as 127.0.0.1
which might fail if you only have IPv6.
could you please try the following (when not being connected to the
- start a terminal
- in the terminal run "ping -c 3 localhost" and see what it prints
- in the terminal run "ping -c 3 127.0.0.1" and see what it prints
- in the terminal start Pd with something like
"/Applications/Pd.app/Contents/Resources/pd" (adjust the path to the
Pd.app if needed)
