Hi, Colin.

Sorry you are having such problems.
There's a lot of detailed documented that's just not yet written.

As you discovered, Picard tools expect the individual Picard jar files
to be in tool-data/shared/jars/
eg in one of the tools like rgPicardMarkDupes.xml you'll see
 -j "${GALAXY_DATA_INDEX_DIR}/shared/jars/MarkDuplicates.jar"

And as you figured out .loc files need to be edited to suit your local
install. There's  http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/Data%20Integration.
There are some changes since that was written, but those .loc files
must have valid paths to local copies of the reference genome and
index files.
(Be careful that you only use tabs to mark columns when you edit them
or mysterious breakage will follow)
The defaults in tool_data_table.xml should work fine.There are
scripted (eg https://bitbucket.org/afgane/mi-deployment ) ways to set
these up - it's fiddly by hand but once you've got one genome working,
adding new ones is not so bad.
