Need Help -- System thread (Linux)

If I want to use system pthread to open a GUI front developed with wxWidgets then what is the entry point ?
Coding is not funny.
It is nothing but a pain.
While people like me still get obessed to it.

wxWidgets does not support using the GUI from a thread, sorry. That being said, I believe GTK is not thread-safe either, so using a different GUI toolkit probably won't work any more. Consider a different design? GUI applications are event-driven and as such live naturally in the main thread
