[Gridflow-dev] pd doesn't open some # objects

There are no other messages. All I get is a bunch of "couldn't create".

I guess maybe I still don't know how to install things properly on Pd.

I did a symlink to gridflow in  ~/pd-externals/

Once I run pd-extended, I thought it should already find all the
*.pd_linux. But doesn't seem so..

When I do pd-extended -lib $HOME/pd-externals/gridflow/gridflow then I
start getting more symbols. I now get most things except #expr,
