Description pjevans3 2011-12-18 14:46:47 UTC
Linux Mint 11, 
LibreOffice 3.3.4 
OOO330m19 (Build:401)
tag libreoffice-3.3.3.1, Ubuntu package 1:3.3.4-0ubuntu1
Intel Core i7, Asus laptop K53S.

I set up a desktop launcher to start Libreoffice Calc with a small spreadsheet. The pathname included a final folder which had a space in the folder name as follows: "pathname/a folder". 
This generated an error message, "pathname/a does not exist". In other words the remainder of the folder name was not read by Libreoffice. I cannot figure out if this is actually a Libreoffice problem or to do with the launcher.

When I renamed the folder without the space, everything functioned normally.

Whoops. I just found a bunch of error messages showing that filenames which have spaces are also not properly handled.
