I am running Xubuntu 18.04 in a desktop computer, installed last week. I am having problems to open files if the path has a blank space and I believe this is producing other problems too (for example this). Just to give an example, I have placed an Inkscape document in a directory
~Escritorio/New Folder. The file is called
dibujo.svg. If I double click it I get two errors:
Google Translate has "Error when loading the requested file" as the translation of "error al carger el archivo pedido" from Spanish.
However if I open a terminal in that place and write
inkscape dibujo.svg everything works fine.
If I make "right click --> open with" and select a program other than Inkscape (say a text editor or an image viewer) there is no strange behavior.
