[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: X2Go Client
Version: v. 4.1.2.2 (Qt - 4.8.7)

I'm trying to use your MacOS client. My Mac username is "steven ufkes" (it contains a space). When I attempt start a session, I get this error:
Loop: PANIC! Can't open options file '/Users/steven'.
Error is 2 'No such file or directory'.

I suspect the program is attempting to open an options file inside my home directory, /Users/steven ufkes/​, but doesn't parse the path correctly. I don't see any way to get around this in the X2Go options.

Thanks,
Steve

Hi,

I'm trying to use your MacOS client. My Mac username is "steven ufkes" (it contains a space). When I attempt start a session, I get this error (screenshot below):
Loop: PANIC! Can't open options file '/Users/steven'.
Error is 2 'No such file or directory'.

I suspect the program is attempting to open an options file inside my home directory, /Users/steven ufkes/​, but doesn't parse the path correctly.
Thanks,
Steve
