- About [pdsheefa]
Written for use with Pure Data, the pdsheefa library provides externals and patches to provide support for creating pd-based SPIN SPIN Framework clients for scene management (show control) and audio rendering. The library contains several objects related to distributed network control. Control signals can be managed, filtered and redirected using several utility objects and abstractions. There is support for simple HID devices (mouse, keyboard, joysticks) and the Ubisense tracking system. Some of the patches and extenals in this library, were taken from other (now frozen) repositories, such as "audioscape", spinwidgets, and pdsheefa-0.3.6. The library also consolidates the xjimmies library (from nSLAM).

Download & Install binary package¶
- Download older tarballs from: http://code.sat.qc.ca/downloads/pdsheefa.
or Download the latest tarballs from: http://code.sat.qc.ca/redmine/projects/pdsheefa/files
- Unpack the tarball.
- Add that path to the list of searched paths in Pd (ie, using the "File > Path" menu in Linux, or "Pd > Preferences > Path" in OSX)
Typical paths are:
- OSX: /Users/userName/Library/Pd/pdsheefa
- Linux: /home/userName/pd-externals/pdsheefa
(see instructions in the README in the pdsheefa directory)
The pdsheefa library requires pd-extended
Although any version of greater than 0.42.5 should work, note that pdsheefa has been successfully tested using the following configurations:
Ubuntu Precise 64-bit:
Not yet packaged, so download it here: Pd-0.43.1-extended-20120430.deb
Ubuntu Precise 32-bit:
Not yet packaged, so download it here: Pd-0.43.1-extended-ubuntu-precise-i386.deb
Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit:
sudo apt-get install tk tcllib libmp3lame0 libquicktime1 libimlib2 wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pure-data/files/pd-extended/0.42.5/Pd-0.42.5-extended-ubuntu-lucid-i386.deb sudo dpkg -i Pd-0.42.5-extended-ubuntu-lucid-i386.deb
Ubuntu Lucid 64-bit:
sudo apt-get install tk tcllib libmp3lame0 libquicktime1 libimlib2 wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/pure-data/files/pd-extended/0.42.5/Pd-0.42.5-extended-ubuntu-lucid-amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i Pd-0.42.5-extended-ubuntu-lucid-amd64.deb
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pure-data/files/pd-extended/0.42.5/Pd-0.42.5-extended-macosx104-i386.dmg # then double-click the .dmg and drag the app to your Applications folder
For the pdsheefa tarball on OSX, you do NOT need any other dependencies.
For Linux, or if you wish to compile from source on ANY OS:
On OSX (using Macports):
sudo port install liblo then sudo port upgrade --enforce-variants liblo +universal
sudo apt-get install liblo7
OR (Linus/OSX) you can build from sources:
You will need to compile/install liblo if you with to use the [OSCrxtx] object for OpenSoundControl.
note: For OSX, you will need to make a universal build.
Dependency: libcwiid (Linux only)¶
For the [cwiidmote] object, that allows use of Nintendo Wii controllers, you will need to install Cwiid
sudo apt-get install libcwiid-dev
Building from source¶
Do the following:
git clone https://code.sat.qc.ca/redmine/pdsheefa.git cd pdsheefa make all sudo make install-all
If you want the lite version of pdsheefa (no externals for sensors), replace the last two lines with:
make sudo make install
NOTE: If you've installed pdsheefa from source, the typical search path that you need to specify in Pd-Extended is:
SPIN Framework: www.spinframework.org
pdsheefa was created as part of the realtime protoyping environment for the SPIN Framework (formerly Audioscape). This networked client/server framework provides a distributed architecture for the management of shared virtual environments. A server maintains the state of 3D content, where client applications can connect and send messages to move content, or receive messages when the content has been modified. Clients typically include editors (immersive display systems, audio spatializers), editing programs/scripts, motion tracking systems, mapping applications, etc. (MORE)
