I'd like to install the Video Editing Software LiVES on my Ubuntu 12.04. The installation itself worked without any problems. When I now start LiVES it runs through the initial configuration until the Dialog LiVES: -Testing Configuration appears, which shows 4 tests being executed (all of them successfully, with a green check). Problem is, the Next-Button is disabled, so I can't continue with the configuration. When trying to use the Cancel-Button, the application seems to hang and I have to kill the process.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated. While answering this question, please keep in mind, that I'm relatively new to Ubuntu.

What version of LiVES are you using ? This may be related to a bug which was fixed in version 1.6.3. (LiVES hangs on install if pulseaudio is not installed).

A workaround is to install pulseaudio before running LiVES for the first time. You can then remove pulseaudio after the LiVES configuration process.
