Mambo/Gallery2 anybody get component working

Argh, this is a new version of this post.

I got the component working after a lot of hassle. Only by writing the paths directly into the database was the component config able to see them and complete the configuration of the gallery component. This seems to be a common problem (a bug). So, fyi, go ahead and do that if you have troubles.

grumble, grumble…
