yes, kdialog --msgbox "`fortune`" shows me a fortune, too, but there is no way to get rid of the big i-logo and it is quite buggy, too: sometimes the last line is removed or only its first half is shown.

but you are right. if i knew about kdialog, i probably wouldn’t have coded this.

Did you have some fun with it? I can imagine. Otherwise I concur with pinotree. You're duplicating functionality of kdialog...

Looks like more or less one of the various functions which `kdialog` (shipped with standard kdebase-runtime) provides.
