You should have a look at the function gdk_input_add().  It allows your
GTK app to receive i/o events on any number of file descriptors.  It
basically provides you with a hook into the Xwindows select call, so if
you understand how select() works, you shouldn't have any trouble
gdk_input_add() to work for you.

Hope this helps,
