GIMP doesn't handle spaces in files correctly.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
GIMP doesn't handle spaces in files correctly. When I open an image, that has
spaces in its filename and then resave it, GIMP will replace it with %20. The
file ends up with %20 in its filename on disk. So, before it is written to disk
the %20 is not translated to a space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open an image, save it to a file with spaces in its name
2. reopen the image, save it again. All spaces in the name will be replaced by %20
filename changed, spaces were replaced by %20
I would have expected that the spaces would be left intact.
It seems to be a known bug in GIMP: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347544
gimp-2.2.12-3 which includes the upstream fix are building right now for Rawhide
gimp-2.2.12-3.fc5 has been pushed for fc5, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Everything works ok now, so I guess this report can be closed.
