I'm trying out a project. I think it's going very well. It doesn't work.
The long-and-short of the project is this: I wish to be able to utilise the excellent audio/DSP (ish) library libpd (based on Pure Data from within LÖVE. I want to use to make interesting audio/visual experiments/games and generally have fun.
I am calling this monstrosity LÖVEpd and it has a github here.
Being new to this I'm working fairly slow. What I've got so far is a simplistic Lua wrapper for libpd's most important functions. Lua and C seem to be working nicely and I can open a Pure Data patch, send it messages, and receive audio data (big ol' list of numbers).
Where I'm at at the moment is getting LÖVE itself to actually run the Lua that interacts with libpd. What I get is this annoying error:
Code: Select all
Error: error loading module 'luapd_wrapper' from file './luapd_wrapper.so': dynamic libraries not enabled; check your Lua installation stack traceback: [C]: ? [C]: in function 'require' main.lua:4: in main chunk [C]: in function 'require' [string "boot.lua"]:331: in function <[string "boot.lua"]:227> [C]: in function 'xpcall'
So anyway, this is part project announcement and part cry for help. Let me know that you think.
