If anyone is interested in reviving the Metamorphose2 project, there's a fork at .

This pointer came from "Is the project abandoned?" at

Hey everyone.

I'm disowning this package since there's been several circumstances that happened that make it hard to maintain all the packages I normally attend to.


for more information.

If you're interested in co-maintaining or owning the package, don't forget to leave a comment (or email me, or toot me on Mastodon).

I was getting also an error during installation of metamorphose2 because of wxpython2.8. wxpython2.8 is in the AUR and in the comments is mentioned that it gets installed after installing wxgtk2. After installing these packages metamorphose2 gets installed without errors.

I'm having the same problem as xenos, any progress or workaround?

commented on 2017-01-22 04:26 (UTC)

As you can see above, wxpython2.8 has been removed from the official repositories and there is no aur package alternative, simply changing the dependency to wxpython doesn't work.

russ0r, I fixed this by creating the missing package exif-py.

russ0r commented on 2015-08-11 18:27 (UTC)

I'm getting an error about a missing dependency. Dependency `exif-py' of `metamorphose2' does not exist. I've tried searching through the AUR and the repos for it, couldn't find anything. Any ideas?

ShadowKyogre commented on 2015-03-24 20:52 (UTC)

There we go, now it has all the proper dependencies listed. I had to also do some sed replacements for the exif-py to work without referring to the internal copies. Importing PIL didn't work until I changed out the image import into an import from the actual PIL python library package. I probably should get those pulled up stream to let the dev(s) know that.

Moved the url to the github one, but forgot to update the dependencies to reflect the new ones. Gimme a moment to re-update this.

Soukyuu commented on 2015-03-24 19:58 (UTC)

Development apparently moved to github, latest release is 0.8.3

Please change the wxpython dependency to wxpython2.8, as mentioned by Mex.

Mex commented on 2014-03-10 15:10 (UTC)

This appears to depends on wxpython2.8

How come there is no gnome menu entry for metamorphose2 ?

commented on 2010-10-22 01:00 (UTC)

Updated to use new python packaging convention. Geez you guys are impatient ;).

Here is the patch from wonder (on the forum) >>

LeCrayonVert commented on 2010-10-21 10:30 (UTC)

Thanks. barebones should update its PKGBUILD or at least let someone else do this ;)

Foucault commented on 2010-10-21 08:59 (UTC)

Just edit /usr/bin/metamorphose2 replacing "python" with "python2"

LeCrayonVert commented on 2010-10-20 18:19 (UTC)

Doesn't work anymore since major upgrade from python 2 to python 3 ;) wxPython 2.8 is required! Refer to 'readme_xx.html' for installation instructions. (though wxpython 2.8.11 is installed)
