SuperCollider installation quest
How to start my first-ever forum question? It's so intimidating!
Well, that's as good a way as any, I suppose.
For the life of me, I can't get the SuperCollider plugin to appear in gedit. When I use synaptic, everything loads well EXCEPT the supercollider-gedit option, which turns red when I click it ("Could not apply changes! Fix broken packages first.")
I followed this fellow's suggestions:
and everything seemed to work fine, but still no gedit. (SC is not an option in "edit->preferences".) Also, unlike that person, I am running gedit 2.30.4, not some 3.~, so I'd THINK it would be even easier.
I'm using Ubuntu Studio 11.04 (Natty Narwhal). I've had success with SC on my laptop running 10.04, but I hate using laptops for anything more than watching cat videos.
Perhaps SuperCollider is working in eMacs and Vim; I don't know, as I haven't figured out how to use those confounding systems. Give me a simple text editor, and gobs of unseemly noises, and I'm happy.
Re: SuperCollider installation quest
Fixed it myself. Classic.
Mind you, I didn't post this question until after hours of work myself... then figured something out 30 minutes later.
If anyone ELSE is googling similar queries, I ended up doing a bunch of work by hand, as suggested at this "obsolete" page:
Also had to uncheck all non-canonical repositories in Synaptic in order to get the computer to stop griping at me.
Still no sound (some jack/server issue), but that's a question for another day... or another forum...
