      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When application name contains spaces, jpackage generates invalid `xdg-desktop-menu` invocations: it does not escape spaces in name, so they become different args to `xdg-desktop-menu`, for example:

      `xdg-desktop-menu install /opt/my-app/lib/My App.desktop`

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Invoke jpackage with `--name "My App"` and `--linux-shortcut`

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Produced deb can be installed/uninstalled
      ACTUAL -
      dpkg fails installs/uninstalls.

      FREQUENCY : always
