Few things to check (and apologies in advance if they are patronising)

1. Check that the relevant FileLibrary subclass has been kept in 

2. Have you copied the images (jpg/png/gif/etc) and css/script files as 
well as the *.image/*.changes?

3. Try using "FileDirectory slash" instead of hard-code '/' string/char.

4. Has your linux VM got the necessary plugins and prims compiled?
