Take a look here on the Debian pkgs:


it takes you to here:


you can try 0.7-3.

you must apply the patches from "pd-hid_0.7-3.debian.tar.xz" to "pd-hid_0.7.orig.tar.gz"

BTW and rather hijacking this thread:
Can you make an 64bit windows [abl_link~]. ?

Is there somebody maintaining this object ? where can I post issues ?

For my project (multitouch inside Puredata with native gui objects*), I found a workaround but I would prefer to be able to use hid object.

So, I'm experiencing issues with [hid] object for listening my
multitouchscreen device (linux).
I can confirm that some messages sent by the touchscreen are lost and
not retrieved in Puredata using this object. I can observe this when I
print in the pd-console  the output of Hid and compare it simultenaously
with the output of an utilitary listening for the same device : evtest.

Is this list the best choice for reporting this issue or may I open an
issue elsewhere ?
