howto KDE KB shortcut to a script that output texts ?


I have a script that out puts the current date and a string.

I have linked it to a KB shortcut in KDE with the idea that I can insert this output into any text area or text document when I hit the shortcut, but its not working like that at all.

How can I have the output of a script usable in X and KDE ??

Not sure if I have asked this question correctly.

I think you should read up on dcop
Here are a couple of links to get you started:
