#5325 closed Bug report (fixed)

Spaces in filenames don't open properly

Reported by: Peter Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: Ubuntu 9.10


If the filename has a space or spaces midway through the filename, then when you try to open the file from within Filezilla (from the right-click menu) it will open a list of files instead of the single file you wanted to open. For example, if you try to open "Template for prototypes.docx", it will respond by attempting to open "Template", "for" and "prototypes.docx", all of them in OpenOffice, and because OpenOffice can't find any of the three, it will pop up three errors of not being able to find each of those three files.

Would it be possible for Filezilla to escape the space characters in a filename or to wrap filenames in quotes?

This occurred while running a version of Filezilla ( obtained through apt-get on Ubuntu 9.10, x86.

This has been fixed already, please update to a more recent version of FileZilla. Ubuntu 10.04 will be out in a couple of days which does contain a newer version of FileZilla.
