Bonjour Julien,

I run XUbuntu 18.04 with some extra repos (ubuntustudio, kxstudio,
oibaf-ubuntu-graphics-drivers, and a few others), so I had to recompile
Pd-L2Ork for Gem. I don't have problems with jack, but maybe I can help.

I suggest to create a Pd-L2Ork Debian package, because this is
ultimately what you need, and because the process takes care of warning
the user if building dependencies are missing (like libjack-dev).

There's 2 methods to get the source :

git clone https://git.purrdata.net/jwilkes/purr-data.git



dpkg-source -x purr-data_2.10.0+git4199+7cf93e5e-1.dsc

cd purr-data-2.10.0+git4199+7cf93e5e

There's one method to create the Debian package:


After a while you should get a fresh new 88Mb package named

To install it: sudo dpkg -i pd-l2ork-2.10.0-20191128-rev.99ca1d46-x86_64.deb

Four menu items should appear in the application menu: "Pd-L2Ork",
"Pd-L2Ork DEBUG", "Pd-L2Ork K12" and "Pd-L2Ork K12 DEBUG"

Bonne chance!
