- Install “Burrito Supreme” version of Pd-L2Ork (this is all you need to run Pd-L2Ork)
- Optionally, install L2Ork Compositions & Abstractions (this is only needed if you wish to perform L2Ork ensemble music)
The “Burrito Supreme” installer will provide you with all components necessary to have a setup equivalent to that of Pd-extended. The L2Ork abstractions are necessary only if you want to create/perform pieces specific to the L2Ork ensemble setup. These are not necessary for running the K12 module.
The instructions and download links for each of these steps are provided below.

- Provides core infrastructure for UI, streamlined implementation of core DSP techniques, networking, and input device data analysis
- USE THIS TO:
- gain access to various useful abstractions commonly used inside L2Ork-specific patches
- ensure 100% compatibility with L2Ork environment

As of July 2015, Pd-L2Ork 1.x deb installer does not conflict with any of the Pd-vanilla or Pd-extended packages, allowing for various flavors of Pd to happily coexist on the same machine. Yay! Pd-L2Ork 2.x installer should co-exist happily alongside both Pd and Purr-Data, with the exception of Linux where, pending updates in the Purr-Data source, both share the pd-l2ork executable and its paths.
To manually install a deb version (the old way), simply double-click on the downloaded deb file or type the following command in the terminal from the folder where the downloaded deb file is located:
sudo dpkg -i pd-l2ork*deb
This will install all the supporting libraries, warn you of any conflicts with other packages (e.g. pd-utils), as well as set up pd-l2ork on your machine.
sudo apt-get -f install
If everything goes well, you will be presented with an option of installing a collection of packages. Please review that you are ok with installing/removing suggested packages and if so, press “Y” to continue. Once this process is complete, pd-l2ork should be installed and ready for use.
Once install process is complete, to run Pd-l2ork simply click on the application shortcut or type:
- Use qjackctl to configure and start JACK server with real-time privileges
- Start pd-l2ork (or pd-l2ork-k12) using the shortcut from the application menu
