Hi, again.

POL v4.1.4-7 cannot open files contain spaces in filenames. For instance, 'Re coll.docx'. But file 'Recoll.docx' is opened without any issues. And it is the same situation if a directory has spaces.

What do you type in your terminal?

I try to open it by double-click.
If I type in the terminal
~ $ playonlinux Re coll.docx
Or if I try to type in the terminal (with quotes).
~ $ playonlinux 'Re coll.docx'
I got the error either.

In terminal:

mial@mial-System-Product-Name ~ $ playonlinux 'Re coll.docx'

And I get two errors of MS Word, one by one:

«File is not found

(Z:\\home\\mial\\Re.docx)»

and

«File is not found

(Z:\\home\\mial\\Мои документы\\coll.docx


I am almost sure, that a day ago I did not have the error. It seems quotes are lost. I suppose that some new settings are the reason, but I have no ideas about it.

Where is the file located?

/home/mial

So, its full name is "/home/mial/Re coll.docx".

What if you type playonlinux "/home/mial/Re coll.docx"?

Hm, the file is opened successfully!

UPD: I don't understand what happens, but it seems, that the problems is fixed by itself. 
Now I can open any file by doble-click and by any other way I use. 
Sorry for false alarm if it was complitly my fault.
