symbolic link data /usr/local/share/udig/udig-data

Description

This was formally available via the users home directory "data" folder; this no longer is available allowing uDig to fail http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc_Testing as the quickstart does not match the dvd contents.

Was a decision made to handle the data directory differently?

Going through the script I find that data ends up in:

  • /usr/local/share/udig/

Can the symbolic link be restored or can we put the data in the users home directory as is done for other sample data?

It actually looks like the "data" folder in the users home directory points to /user/local/share/data?

So I recommend adding a symbolic udig-data to /usr/share/data folder? I will need some help/review of the install_udig.sh script to make this happen.

Summary: symbolic link to /usr/local/share/udig/udig-datasymbolic link data /usr/local/share/udig/udig-data

I was not able to sort out a symbolic link; but did change the install_udig script to unpack a udig_data folder in /usr/local/share/data/udig-data
