Description Takashi Nakamoto 2005-09-27 22:28:23 UTC
The full release package (version 0.17) has "recreation/music/CD Player"
directory containing one clip art. But some operation systems like Linux cannot
handle such directory names including a space character correctly.
Comment 1 Michael Moore 2005-10-30 20:09:29 UTC
A space is a valid char. Both Gnome and KDE handle it propperly. On the terminal
 you must escape it either by quoting the path: "/foo/bar/my space path/" or by
escaping the space: /foo/bar/my\ space\ path.

If no one has a counter claim to this, this bug should probably be closed.

There's no good reason to keep the space character.  It serves no purpose, and
we're trying to be as cross-platform-friendly as possible here.  Additionally,
in this case, there's no reason to keep that _directory_ at all; it has only one
image in it, which ought to be moved to the parent directory.

the directory layout will be changed when the releases are developed for 
ccHost. Hence this issue will not be an issue anymore. im resolving this to

Mass reopen.  The "LATER" resolution is lame, I'm deleting it.  Consider LATER to have arrived.

Closing all openclipart bugs as openclipart is now on launchpad, as per request from  Jon Philips.
