How to load an image file from disk in qweb report?

on 7/20/15, 5:45 PM 2,195 views

I need to overlap an image with text in my report. "Normal" html code like that does not work - the image is not shown at all:

 <template id="external_layout_header">
<div class="header">
<table width="22cm" border="1" height="30cm">
<tr background="logo.jpg">
<div><span t-field="company.partner_id"/></div>
<div><span t-field="company.zip"/> <span t-field="company.city"/></div>

It seems to me, that qweb is unable to load images from disk. Even if I provide absolute path for the image, it is not shown neither in html nor in pdf. I get the following error:

ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'logo.jpg'

Why does it look for an integer when reading name/path for the image? Is this a known bug? Can somebody confirm that Odoo v8 / qweb is unable to load resource files from disk?

Has nobody really never loaded an image file from disk within a qweb report to explain to me how it works?
