Inhibit GTK verbose messages when running GTK/Gnome applications from terminal

Hi guys,

do anyone know a quick way to inhibit/hide GTK warning, info and debugging messages when running GTK+/Gnome applications from terminal?

I means those boring messages like "Gtk-WARNING blablabla..." and similar ones.

Thanks in advance!

I think if you pipe stderr to /dev/null, it should stop the messages from the program.

program --start-now /home/jack/me.iso 2>/dev/null 1>/dev/null
Just as a side note, does anyone know why 2>&1 1>/dev/null is not the same as piping 1 and 2 to /dev/null like 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null?

good luck,
