It is doing exactly what it is designed to do. Linux file name conventions don't pay any attention to extensions and can be any length. Linux applications pay attention to the content of a file. A space is used by Linux to delineate a break between file names unless it is either escaped by a \ or entered as a %20. You can also use PCManfm to move the files, however they are named, by drag & drop. The only thing you can't do is to simply double-click on a file to open it if you use a space in the name.TheBigH wrote:That's not really an option. I have too many files to rename them all, it'd take me forever. Besides, why should I have to? Why can't PCman do what it's meant to do?

Maybe it's not PCManFM that is the culprit - could it be your default text editor?
