Hard-coded paths prevent installing in HOMEDIR

Bug Description

Currently ANoise hard-codes paths in `/usr/share`, which makes it impossible for a user to install it in his/her home directory by running `python setup.py install --user`. (I expect for the same reason it is also impossible to install ANoise in a virtualenv.)

It would be great to see this fixed. Once it is, it would be wonderful to add ANoise to the python package collection, pypi, as well. This will allow users using distributions other than Ubuntu to more easily use ANoise.

Hi Garrison,
Do you know how to do it? I don't :$
Thanks!

Thanks costales for the reply.

I should be able to fix it, but I am not very good with bzr. So together we should be able to do it! I'll make an attempt this weekend, and keep you posted.

Ops :) If bzr is the problem, just run:
bzr branch lp:anoise

Edit whatever and share here with copy.com, dropbox, etc. I would do a merge.
Thanks in advance!

One of the first things is to remove each "/usr/" from setup.py. One good example of this is the setup.py file of pychess: https://github.com/pychess/pychess/blob/master/setup.py
