Oops, sorry about misreading ; well I don't understand why you'd have to 
create a symlink for it to work. And I've never seen a case where you'd 
compile x11 support and it wouldn't work.

Note that x11 support is now loaded as a separate lib named 
gridflow/gridflow_x11.pd_linux, and this gets loaded automatically by 
gridflow/gridflow.pd_linux, but only in the case that you load it 

Note that you should not have a -path to GridFlow's directory, only to its 
parent directory, otherwise, GridFlow's separately-compiled plugins will 
not be found (x11, gem, pdp).

What does the log say at load time, about those plugins ? Is there a 
« symbol not found » related to x11 ? since 9.13, this does not prevent 
the rest of gridflow from loading (this is a feature actually meant for 
OSX, but that I implemented portably).
