The Deken pkg is:


it works out of the box.
True that the "pd-" in the folder name wasn't necessary. (will update the pkg soon).

All the folder tree explanation was meant for Oliver who is trying to make it work on osx.

Also true that [declare -path] has no effect.

that's something that puzzled me with your deken package as well:
instead of putting the plugin into <PATH>/pd-dnd-plugin/, why don't you
just install it it into <PATH>/dnd-plugin? (so you end up with a file
<PATH>/dnd-plugin/dnd-plugin.tcl; with <PATH> in Pd's search path)
no fuzzing around with preferences, path and lib whatnot.
this is how all GUI-plugins are supposed to be installed.

the "pd-" prefix of the github project is probably only there to
organize the repositories on github, rather than meant as the canonical
installation path.

(as a sidenote, i doubt (having not tried it) whether [declare -path]
does *anything* for GUI-plugins, as these are loaded on startup of
pd-gui only)
