Morrowind and spaces in file paths

I installed Morrowind yesterday.
It seems to work but every access to a file with a space in its path fails. For example, when I click on "New Game", an error message says "..../data files/sound/Fx/menu click.wav cannot be found. Continue ? yes/no".
What can i do to fix it ?
Thanks a lot.

Hi _plop_,

What's your Wine version?
Did you install Morrowind with or without its extension? And what's the Morrowind version number?

Morrowind + Bloodmoon (ie. v1.6.1820)

Thanks for taking a look Ghostofkendo

Well, I don't have Bloodmoon nor Tribunal but I installed Morrowind (v1.2.0722) to see if I had the same bug.
I didn't encounter such a bug nor any kind of error.
So searched the web for any other case with a similar bug but I didn't found any

So, according to the Wine AppDB page for Morrowind + Bloodmoon, I would suggest you to try with another version of Wine (1.1.10 for example). Use Tools > Wine version manager in PlayOnLinux to do so.
Try also to set the sound driver to OSS in winecfg (select Morrowind in POL, click on the "Configure this app" button and choose Configuration of wine).

Tell us if these changes fix your bug.

I installed wine 1.1.14 and set the driver to OSS but the problem remains.
I think i'll try to install Oblivion ^^

Thanks for your help Ghostofkendo.
