PyGTK GUI update without signals from GUI

Hi All:

I am currently having a problem updating a GUI.

I am using PyGTK and Glade to design an interface for a project. This
interface contains no buttons, just images, labels, and a progress
bar. The code for the project is small, and it basically does some
things independent of the GUI in an infinite loop. I need the project
code to update the GUI intermittently. I have found, though, that
generally it seems that the gtk.main loop is looking for signals from
the GUI and I cannot figure out how to give it signals from another
application. I have thought spawning a new thread from the __init__
in the GUI and somehow having it send signals to gtk.main, but I do
not know if this will work.

Any opinions or ideas on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
