[PD] Pd and sounds are running but windows are blank

Do *not* install Pd to a system path unless you are using a newer version of Tcl/Tk as the included 8.5.9 is quite broken: blank windows, etc. As noted in INSTALL.txt:
I know this is tempting, especially for those coming from Linux, but there are a number of issues with using Pd on macOS like this, including application defaults keys not working as launching a Tk script for the command line will not connect it to app bundle plist settings which are included within a Pd .app, etc. If you want to invoke Pd on the command line, I recommend using a shell alias as documented in INSTALL.txt as well.
The safest bet is to build a Pd .app using "make app" although I'm not sure if the included pre-build Tcl/Tk Wish .app is up to date with Miller's releases yet:
This results in a Pd-0.51-4.app in the main Pd source tree. I'd recommend right-clicking and renaming it to "Pd-0.51-4-double.app" if you have multiple versions on the same machine.
Also, the deprecation warning is from the system (macOS) and not from Pd. It basically means that Apple will remove the included Tcl/Tk from macOS in the future. Note: It is still shipped with macOS 11 but is unfortunately the broken 8.5.9 version.
