When I use dmenu_extended_run from i3 with a shortcut it does not open a specific ods file. If I use dmenu_extended_run from a teminal with python ~/dmenu-extended/dmenu_extended.py it opens that specific file. Another ods file opens with both methods. The two files are in the same location. The difference is that the file that does not open has UTF-8 characters in the name. If I rename the file and rebuild the cache it opens so it seems the combination of i3+dmenu_extended_run cannot handle UTF-8.
File with UTF-8 in name should open.
Try to open a file with å, ä or ö in the name with a shortcut to dmenu_extended_run.
