This is a GRAMPS problem, not your CD.

The problem there is that the paths to the pictures are absolute, but
when the database is imported it defaults to the users home directory as
the base for the media files.

I think we need to add a variable to the database and XML output which
records the base of the media path. Otherwise we can't really ship media
with the sample XML database - it will never be linked unless manually
done by the user (not much use as a sample then).

This is available. We only need somebody changing the xml file in subversion to start using relative paths, and to set the media path in the preferences. After this, all will work with images.

I ran into this snag a while ago but didn't get around to mentioning it.
