LiVES is a free, open source video editor and VJ tool. Due to lack of a PPA for latest LiVES binary packages, I’ve finally built the current LiVES 2.2.2 into PPA for Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10, Ubuntu 12.04 and their derivatives. What I did is just borrowed the official build of LiVES package and did a little changes on build-depends.
I’m still a noob on building debian packages, and I’ll keep updating this PPA as possible as I can.
