6.3.9: File names in webdav mounts

Post by MKochS »

Version: 6.3.9 CE
OS: Debian Sid

Good afternoon,

I have found the following and don't know how to handle it. I've mounted webdav directories via davfs2 to local directories in a user's homedir. So far, this is working. However, files containing spaces in their names appear in single quotes - note the second line:

Code: Select all

-rw-r--r-- 1 user tape  17617 Okt 10  2017  2017-09_Umsaetze_DE86513900000027159303_2017.10.10.csv
-rw-r--r-- 1 user tape  26941 Aug 26  2018 [b]'[/b]2018-08-26 Sonderausgaben 2017.ods[b]'[/b]
Consequently, they cannot be accessed from the command line, although "find" still finds them.

Graphical tools like filemanagers (thunar, nautilus) display them without quotation marks and handle them normally.

Is there something that can be done?

This is the way how Linux shown these files when you are listing. This is not OpenKM behaviour is the standard Linux ( and I think the lastest windows version) the documents with spaces are shown. Try to create your own document in Linux and you'll see the same. I think is not OpenKM issue. Anyway try copy a document with spaces to a new destination in your file system ( outside openkm ). And if you get an error share the screenshot
