piping an 'error' window from termenal (shell script)

On susie 9.1 the mount/ umout of kde is broken.... so i made buttions that run shell scripts.
the unmount script will geneate an error if the unmount is unsucessful.
the error is displayed if I run the script in termanal.
I want to pass the error to a kde. (pop up a window that has the error in it)
