1. see menu item View Include Album Subtree

2. You can have photos anywhere you like as long as your user is 
authorised to view that location.

3. If your distro does not include a pre-built installer then either 
request they do or change distro. Several distros do have pre built 
packages. Sorry not familiar with Zorin.
