* Is this installed in the crontab of the 'pi' user?
* Have you tried that exact command on the command line - e.g. copying
and pasting and ensuring it works?
* On my system at least the binary is called 'pd' rather than
'puredata' - have you verified this is the correct binary?
* By default cron is often missing important environment variables
such as PATH. Try specifying the full path to your puredata binary. You
can find this out: `which puredata` or `which pd`.
