[PD] Installing GEM through Dekken not working

Thank you very much for your attention.

*sudo apt-get install gem*

Gives me:

*Reading package lists... Done*

*Building dependency tree *

*Reading state information... Done*

*gem is already the newest version (1:0.93.3-13).*

*0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.*

So I uninstalled gem with

*sudo apt-get remove gem*

and reinstalled it with

*sudo apt-get install gem*

it installed 6 new packages, but I cannot open gem objects in pd. I am
looking for the directory of gem to put it in preferences>path but cannot
find it. So I installed *locate* and found it is in


with capital G (why? isn’t its name “gem”?)

Anyway I added this path to pd preferences and when I create object
|gemwin| it still gives me lots of errors for related objects.

Then I found this other directory (with “gem”, not capital letter)


added this to the preferences>path with no success.
I finally was able to do it running:

*pd -lib Gem *

Thank you very much again for your support.
