Quite easy: Run exec_() inside the new thread, not inside your GUI/main
thread. To do that add a run() method which only contains
Then from the main thread (i.e. after the text.connect) start your
thread by calling a.start(). You might need to add another function to
your thread-class that starts the timer, but I'm not sure might as well
just work as is...
You're at the end of the road again.
