Using external data-files in programs

How can I write programs that use external data-files which can be run
from konqueror by (double) clicking on them?
I usually have sounds and images in a directory called "data" and open
the files from my program using a relative path, but when I run them
from konqueror the program can't open the files in "data/". So
whenever I give a program to some friends or something they have to
open a terminal and browse to the directory containing the executable
file before they can run the program.

Thanks in advance.
