SQuirreL SQL cannot be started using a shortcut in the application-menu created by the .jar installer. Instead, an error is displayed:
Could not launch 'SQuirreL SQL Client'. Failed to change to directory '"/home/kmantis/SQuirreL SQL Client"' (No such file or directory).
Strange thing is, Squirrel is actually installed in the directory mentioned in the error.
If I create a new shortcut in the menu and point it to the squirrel-sql.sh file in the same directory, that home-made shortcut will work. Even if I copy-paste the path from the home-made shortcut to the installed-made shortcut, the installer-made shortcut will not work, returning the same error.
When installing Squirrel to a directory without spaces, the installed-made shortcut works.
