    zenity alternatives for big texts?

    Are there any alternatives to zenity?

    Ones that can show big amounts of text inside a single window?

    Preferably in available in Ubuntu package sources.

    define 'big amounts of text'

    Code:
    zenity --height=600 --width=800 --text-info < <( ps ux )
    zenity --height=600 --width=800 --text-info <<< "some string"
    zenity --height=600 --width=800 --text-info --filename=some_file.txt
    echo "some string" | zenity --height=600 --width=800 --text-info
