Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 92005
Fonts filenames with spaces in the names make various bits of X explode.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:10 EDT
The various bits of X that deal with font files, do not handle filenames
with spaces in them, which causes users grief, especially when dropping in
font files from Windows and other OSs which generally use spaces in filenames
This is a long standing problem in X11, which is probably very trivial to
fix once all the places are isolated. An upstream bug report is tracking
this as well:
This would be nice to have fixed for the next release of XFree86, and our
next OS release.
Deferring for future development
Upstream bug report moved from xfree86.org to freedesktop.org
