did you set up your package manager to also install all suggested packages?

$ apt-cache depends puredata
   Depends: puredata-core
   Depends: puredata-core
   Depends: puredata-dev
   Depends: puredata-dev
   Depends: puredata-doc
   Depends: puredata-doc
   Depends: puredata-extra
   Depends: puredata-extra
   Depends: puredata-gui
   Depends: puredata-gui
   Depends: puredata-utils
   Recommends: gem
   Suggests: pd-aubio
   Suggests: pd-csound
   Suggests: pd-pdp
   Suggests: pd-zexy
   Suggests: multimedia-puredata

you can also just install puredata-core, which doesn't even depend on 
puredata-gui, only recommends it.

$ apt-cache depends puredata-core
   Depends: libasound2
   Depends: libc6
  |Depends: libjack-jackd2-0
   Depends: <libjack-0.125>
   Depends: libportaudio2
   Breaks: puredata
   Breaks: puredata-doc
   Breaks: puredata-gui
   Breaks: puredata-gui
   Recommends: puredata-gui
   Replaces: puredata
   Replaces: puredata-doc
