    I just decided I'm through using proprietary video editing software and want
    to install LiVES on my MacBook Pro. I downloaded version 1.0.2. and follow the
    installation steps. But when I get to ./configure, I receive this message:

    configure: error: Cannot find pkg-config, make sure it is installed and in
    your PATH

    I have a feeling this is basic stuff, but I can't find any info online of how
    to solve it. Help?

    Hi Jared,

    welcome to the forum. I am the main developer of LiVES and I will try to help
    you with this. I dont have access to Mac hardware right now so it will be down
    to others to provide the answers. I do know that LiVES will compile if you
    have the right pieces installed. I think at a minimum you will need fink and
    xtools to compile. If you can be a bit patient, maybe we can document the
    entire process of compiling on OSX here.

    Great! Let's document the process. I just installed Fink. Already have xtools.
