OK, we'd be interested to hear what you find.
On the first point, I have identified that the following types
of file can't be located with the default installation: (a) help
files (this warning comes up when the program loads), (b) gretl
logo in Help/About dialogue, (c) sample data files (File/Open
data/Sample file) and database (File/Databases/Gretl native),
and (d) sample script files (File/Script files/Practice file)...
Delete (or edit) ~/.gretl2rc and try again. I strongly suspect
you have a stale personal gretl config file in place that is
pointing to the wrong location for gretl's shared files.
