Running Metamorphose 2 0.6.3 (Downloaded from SVN Head 16/09/09) on Ubuntu 9.04 with Python 2.6.2 and wxPython 2.8.9.1.
This is what is printed to the terminal when Metamorphose attempts to generate the new names:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/renamer/wxRenamerView.py", line 99, in OnDropText
self.prnt.addOperationToStack(data,pos)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/renamer/wxRenamerView.py", line 469, in addOperationToStack
main.showPreview(event)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/MainWindow/__init__.py", line 648, in showPreview
self.onPreviewButton(False)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/MainWindow/__init__.py", line 947, in onPreviewButton
self.renamer.previewItems(event)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/renamer/__init__.py", line 90, in previewItems
self.Preview.generateNames(event)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/renamer/preview.py", line 233, in generateNames
self.run(operations)
File "/home/ezekiel/metamorphose2/Source/renamer/preview.py", line 285, in run
onlyShowChangedItems = main.prefs['onlyShowChangedItems']
KeyError: 'onlyShowChangedItems'

I get the same problem running the installed deb of 0.6.3 from the website, but I haven't updated that since the last time I was able to use metamorphose 2 without any problems maybe it's an issue with an updated python or wxpython package as I can't remember if those have been updated since I last used it successfully.

    Hi, right now there are some pretty heavy changes going on in SVN, resulting in many things being broken. Try to completely uninstall and then install the deb package. If you saved or updated any config files they are most likely corrupt.

    Thanks, deleting the settings files fixed the problem.
