It triest to copy the keys.cfg file from the content dir or zip file to ~/.uqm/
The latter dir should be created if it doesn't exist, so I presume it can't find the content dir or zip file.
What version have you compiled? The 0.3 source, or the CVS version. The latter is advised.
Also, how did you install it? Have you followed the steps in doc/users/unixinstall?

OKay, right. Found the problem.  When installing the content file, do not unzip it. All you have to do is copy to the package dir
Stupid me
