Getting an error while compiling.

The full error can be found here:

"asf_decoder.c:1331:21: error: 'AVCodecContext' has no member named 'palctrl'"

Added 'pulseaudio' as a dependency and removed the non existent 'pulse' optional dependency.

How about making pulse-audio a dependency?

I don't have pulse-audio installed on my system, however the program built and installed correctly, attempts to run, but refuses to start:

LiVES warning: Unable to connect to pulseaudio server

I'll take a look at the source and see what's up, but if the program is requiring/recommending pulse, then I think it should be a dependency.

find -type f -exec sed -i 's:/bin/touch:/usr&:g' {} \;

above ./configure so that people don't have to symlink touch...

missing 'glee' build dependency

I confirm the /bin/touch issue. Should this be reported upstream? This isn't effecting only the Arch distribution; touch can be installed at any location.

i had to create a the symlink /bin/touch to get the startup wizzard working because it tried to check if it can write to the chosen direktory. i got something like "lives was unable to create/write into the given directory. please check permissions" and on stdout: "sh: /bin/touch: No such file or directory"
