#702 Images not shown / Kiwix (linux) / Zimwriterfs


What I have:
A zimfile generated with the latest libzim and zimwriterfs (git).
Kiwix for linux 0.9-rc2.

What I expect:
After loading the zimfile, kiwix displays the image.

What I get:
A broken image-link icon.

The zim-file does work with kiwix for android. (And of course in a local browser.)

Please see attached sources, zim-file.

zimwriterfs --welcome=html/index.html --language=ger --title=ImgTest --description=ImgTest --creator=Niki --favicon=media/favicon.png --publisher=Niki static/ z.zim

Please let me know, if I can be of any assistance.

    I bisected the problem and the first bad commit is:

    I think something with the usage of relative paths doesn’t agree with kiwix (linux).

    Yes, this is related to relative path but with last version of the code, no problem. You shoud also add a <head> tag to your html.

    I see the same problem in wikipedia_mg_all_06_2014.zim and wikipedia_it_all_06_2014.zim on 0.9rc2 (Linux e350 3.14.7-200.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jun 11 22:38:05 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux).
    If I try to save an image, the suggested filename looks like this:
