Summary0006525: Little problem when I drag my files from Desktop on terminal.
DescriptionThere's a little bug, I suppose it's all because of language (in my situation it's Russian). In English Desktop is "Desktop", in Russian Desktop is "Рабочий стол". As we can see it has a space between words so when I drag my file called test on terminal " " (space) remains " " not "\ ". Since that file can't be executed. System tries to find directory "Рабочий" but it doesn't exist.
Steps To ReproduceThis bug can be reproduced only using Russian. Just drag any file from Desktop to terminal.

The issue here is not the language but the space in the file's name. You need to wrap it between quotes or scape the space as in the second example with '\ '.
Some terminals (like gnome-terminal) add the quotes automatically, but others (like qterminal or konsole) do not. This is not an issue, just a different behavior. As a suggestion, I recommend avoiding spaces inside file names that you're going to use from the terminal.
