Owen Morrison's last-minute free-kick earned Dunfermline a draw as they secured their first league point.
Dave Mackay gave Livingston the lead from the penalty spot
Morrison drove his shot through the Livingston wall and past the helpless Mariusz Liberda to cancel out David MacKay's opener from the penalty spot.
MacKay was on target in the 82nd minute after Souleymane Bamba upended Steven Craig in the box.
Bamba was sent off for a second yellow card and MacKay slotted the ball past Pars keeper Sean Murdoch.
Murdoch pulled off a fine save from Liam Fox's shot in injury time to ensure a share of the spoils.
