I want to be able to start any command / application that could be given

executable string, so that I can display it in a Gtk window.

This problem is not specifically a Gtk problem but a problem
on how processes communicate.

You should read chapter 14.2 and onwards in Richard Stevens book
"Advanced programming in the Unix Environment" ISBN 0-201-56417-7
where he explains this in great detail.
