<div dir="ltr">Hi Jim.<div>That's not a bug. ofelia and some other external libraries such as GEM use only one binary file which contains all objects in it.</div><div>When using these types of external libraries, you must create(or declare) the base object first in order to use all other objects in the library.</div><div><br></div><div>To do this, you can of course put a [declare -lib ofelia] into a patch whenever you want to use the library.</div><div>Or you can go to Pd -> Preferences -> Startup -> New and add ofelia so it can be loaded whenever you start Pd.

<pre>I found I have to put a [declare -lib ofelia] object in the patch, close it and then re-open it. From there on during that PD session all ofelia objects will load. This happens to me with some other externals as well even though I have the external location in my path.
|Hello Jim, I can I ask what machine are you using, I am running 17.1 too,
|but I am not able to create the objects after compiling.

<pre>Thank you for this External. Some great objects in there. I am using
Ubuntu 17.10 . It appeared to install perfectly and I ran the script to
install dependencies. The non graphics objects I have tested are working
great but I don't get anything rendered to the Ofelia window when I try out
the graphics examples.
