Please Help me merge BASH and KDIALOG Script

Tip: for those who don't already know. sudo apt-get install kdebase-bin will install kdialog on Q4os

-----------------

I had errors trying to use dialog scripting program Zenity with Q4OS. it gave me a GTK error but, KDIALOG does not produce same error in Q4OS.

How do I pass the Kdialog variable u  to the Bash script u ?   (so apt-get will run upon selection)

Currently,  the u is passed to the terminal screen and ? appears.  I then must press enter and apt-get update will run.

#!/bin/bash
# simple menu to do various functions

kdialog --menu "Select a language:" u "Apt-get update" b French d "Oz' English"

while [ answer != "0" ] 
do
clear


read -p " ?" answer

       0) break ;;
       1) sudo apt-get install gdebi

Re: Please Help me merge BASH and KDIALOG Script

See code & video below.  Logo will be changed from the Q4OS logo so to prevent any confusion these are my Get Installers for Q4OS.

I found another away to "Q4OS Shortcut --> Kdialog Message "Yes / No" --> sudo apt-get update --> Kdialog Message "Success" --> Exit.

Now able to make terminal action scripts for package installs; display system info, etc to dramatically reduce the learning curve for previous windooos users as they move over to Q4OS.

I am so happy today !  I am so Thankful for you guys for developing Q4OS and for providing help, can't do it without you and others help.

THANK YOU SO MUCH !

kdialog --title "Bobby's Apt Update ?" --yesno "Apt Repository Database \
.\n Do you want to update now?"

if [ $? = 0 ]; then
./apt-get-update.sh
fi

exit 0
