Description Michael Tsang 2011-06-20 12:52:45 UTC
Version:           4.2.1 (using KDE 4.6.3) 
OS:                Linux

When I set the executable path, it does not quote the spaces properly, resulting in a missing executable

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a project which builds a executable in a path with spaces
2. click run -> configure launches
3. add a configuration 
4. select the executable
5. click ok
6. run it

Actual Results:  
it started /bin/bash, saying it can't find the executable

Expected Results:  
It should run the executable

OS: Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.38-2-amd64
Compiler: gcc

kdevelop should be 4.2.2, cannot find 4.2.2 above

by run - do you mean execute or debug?
Comment 2 Niko Sams 2011-06-20 21:17:37 UTC
ah, or do you run in an external terminal? Afaics that it not quoted correctly.
Comment 3 Michael Tsang 2011-06-22 11:06:27 UTC
to run the executable in an external konsole in the default configuration
