Pd Installers

I work on these distros whenever I have time, here and there, generally in bursts of a couple weeks every few months. All of my work in GPL'ed and in the CVS, so if you want something fixed or done, its possible to do it yourself. That is what I did with these installers, building upon the work of so many others. It is also possible to sponsor me to create new things or fix problems.


I'd definitely work on this more if I could get paid to do it. Then I wouldn't have to do other freelance jobs. No amount is too small, anything is appreciated. If I got 1€/$1 from each downloader, I would be very happy.

Final Releases

This page is for test releases, which means they are likely to have problems. Unless you need the latest-greatest, or just want to help test (thanks!), you should download the latest stable release from one of the sources below:

Pd-extended Test Releases

For this release, there has been a lot of work in usability and bug fixes. There has already been a lot of testing on these builds, so it is getting quite close to a final version. For more info, check the Next Release wiki.

Since rc1, this has been fixed:



To install, either double-click the package and use the GUI app, or run this from the Terminal:
dpkg -i Pd-0.41.4-extended-rc2-debian-lenny-i386.deb

tar xjf Pd-0.41.4-extended-rc2-linux-i386.tar.bz2

Things seem to be working fine. Try things out and post to the list when things are broken. If I don't hear of any problems, I'll make this the release and stick it on the SourceForge page.
