Two ways kdialog could be improved:
1)It should be able to accept text from stdin, eg "fortune | kdialog --msgbox -"
(gnome-dialog and Xdialog can both do this)
2)It should have an option --dont-double-newlines. Currently, if the text contains
a sequence of one or more newlines, kdialog converts these to exactly 2 newlines.
i.e. \n or \n\n or \n\n\n all become <br><br>.
This is sensible behaviour most of the time, but not always, especially if the text is dynamic, and
therefore not known to the author of the script.
2b)It should (perhaps) have an option --nowrap which would prevent line wraps from occurring.
A good example of this would be to display a fortune when the user logs in, (via .kde/Autostart).
The text from fortune is already preformatted, and the result looks ugly.
Sorry, this is a dup of Bug 111388. The server timed out, and I resubmitted it.
Mark a duplicate so noone wuld think the issue is solved and closes the duplicate as well...
