Do you know the Glib::Dispatcher which can be used to notify a thread?
If you put an instance somewhere in your gui-classes then other threads
can notify the gui-thread.
Thank you for the response.  I am now aware of the Dispatcher, however, all the docs talk about this GUI thread, but how can I notify it?  Is there an object I can reference or a function to call to get to this thread?
