I tried to set up a launcher using the following command:

"nautilus /home/user/Ubuntu One/Biologie"

But if I start the launcher nautilus will try to open the folder "/homer/user/Ubuntu" and "/One/Biologie".

Any suggestions how to solve the problem without changing the folders namefrom "Ubuntu One" in "UbuntuOne"?

Thank you!

Use an escape char to handle spaces, this will work.

nautilus /home/user/Ubuntu\ One/Biologie
