Any Linux Mint (Cinnamon) users out there? How to check SCIDE version installed with 3.7

My problem is that the step of evaluating include("DirtSynth") fails with an error message, ERROR: Quark not found in repository. On Linux Mint (Cinnamon) the IDE Help->About menu describes the SCIDE version as 3.6.6, but apt-get install tells me that 1:3.7.0~repack-4 is already installed (in /usr/bin/scide).

I can't find the Dirt Synth quark anywhere on the machine after running a

find / -name Dirt* -print

but there do seem to be two files in ~/.cabal/lib/x86_64-linix-ghc-7.10.3/tidal-0.9.4.-J1Ag4w4z2Nt1MB0wpHvPq/Sound/Tidal called Dirt.hi and Dirt.dyn, are these related to the problem? Is it just a case of getting paths set up to point to the correct folder before starting SCIDE?

Thanks in advance - Jerry

Hi I'm on Linux Mint 18.1, but as far I know supercollider 3.7 isn't yet available for mint as standard, only 3.6.6.

Do you know how 3.7.0 came to be installed?

Perhaps you could do whereis scide to see if there is more than one copy of supercollider installed.

I have supercollider 3.8, but I compiled it from source.
