PS/PDF Viewer fails to print a PDF when path contains spaces
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
The kde PDF viewer (part of kghostscript) fails to print a PDF if the PDF has a
space in its absolute path.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put any PDF file in a directory that contains a space in its name.
2. Open the PDF using the PS/PDF viewer (ie. the default in KDE)
3. Attempt to print
A print error occured. Error message received from the system:
/usr/bin/lpr -P 'lp' '-#1'
/home/andrew/.kde/tmp-amiklas/kghostviewdC8nEb.ps: execution failed with
lp: nothing to print.
PDF should print -- just as it does when the path does not contain a space.
Fixed in FC3 (and possibly older fedora releases).
