you should start by installing Gem.
then you have to load it, before you can use it.
this might seem obvious advice, but so far the only thing you told us is thay "it doesn't work". it's much easier to help if you tell us what you did and what happened as a result.

there's no such object in Pd.

probably. have you tried searching for "triangle" in deken?

you probably should start reading the documentation :-)

only [objects]   (rectangles) can actually be made to emit signals (eg sound). if the thingy has a wedge on the righthand side (eg "[bang("), it's a messagebox and will never make any noises.
most objects that dont end with " ~" wont do audio either. and most of them will only send messages when triggered. eg [123] will never send its number unless you send a [bang( to it, so your osc~ might happily humm at 0Hz...
