I have a bash variable with a kdialog command in it. I am having problems getting it to display correctly.
if i run the command straight from a shell it works perfect but from inside the script i cannot get it to display right. here is an example of the variable where the number is the value i want returned and the quoted text is the menu item:
That doesnt seem to be working either. If you run through this set of commands you can see what i mean better.
jeff@linux:~> KDIALOGCOMMAND="kdialog --menu \"What did you want:\" a \"hi\""
jeff@linux:~> echo $KDIALOGCOMMAND
kdialog --menu "What did you want:" a "hi"
jeff@linux:~> kdialog --menu "What did you want:" a "hi"
