Description A. Miklas 2002-01-04 17:22:47 EST
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):

How Reproducible:

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

Actual Results:
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.

Expected Results:
PDF should print -- just as it does when the path does not contain a space.

Fixed in FC3 (and possibly older fedora releases).
