Follow-up Comment #10, bug #53354 (project octave):

I have the same issue with spaces in folder name. After some debugging, I
found that command line which calls GS is not correct. In my case it is 

cmd = C:\Octave\OCTAVE~1.2\bin\gs.exe -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER
-dAutoRotatePages=/None -sDEVICE=eps2write -sOutputFile=""test test\test.eps""

As you can see, there are two double quotes in output file name.

Variable 'fileout' in line 607 of print.m gets extra single quotes, which in
line 688 are replaced with double quotes. Additional quotes are added in line
148 of __ghostscript__.m.

Removing the extra quotes in __ghostscript__.m resolves the issue.
