Basic applet developement

Hi all.
I am attempting my first Gnome applet creation and I found a great
tutorial at .
Unfortunately, I am stuck where the example goes to load an image. I can
compile the applet and make it run but when I add it to the Gnome bar it
doesn't show anything. I have some printf's in the code and those work on
the console.
Here's the code I am working on:

#include <string.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#include <panel-applet.h>
#include <gtk/gtklabel.h>
#include <gtk/gtkimage.h>
#include <gtk/gtkbox.h>

static gboolean
  on_button_press (GtkWidget      *event_box,
                         GdkEventButton *event,
                         gpointer        data)
	static int window_shown;
	static GtkWidget *window, *box, *image, *label;
	/* Don't react to anything other than the left mouse button;
	   return FALSE so the event is passed to the default handler */
	if (event->button != 1)
		return FALSE;

	if (!window_shown) {
		window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
		box = GTK_BOX (gtk_vbox_new (TRUE, 12));
		gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (window), box);

		image = GTK_IMAGE (gtk_image_new_from_file
		gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (box), image, TRUE, TRUE, 12);

		label = gtk_label_new ("Hello World");
		gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (box), label, TRUE, TRUE, 12);

		gtk_widget_show_all (window);
		gtk_widget_hide (GTK_WIDGET (window));

	window_shown = !window_shown;
	return TRUE;

static gboolean
myexample_applet_fill (PanelApplet *applet,
   const gchar *iid,
   gpointer data)

	GtkWidget *image, *event_box;
	printf("I just instantiated the image\n");
	if (strcmp (iid, "OAFIID:ExampleApplet") != 0)
		return FALSE;

	image = gtk_image_new_from_file ("/usr/share/pixmaps/camorama.png");
	printf("I just loaded the image\n");
	event_box = gtk_event_box_new ();
	gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (event_box), image);
	printf("I just created the EB container\n");
	gtk_widget_show_all (GTK_WIDGET (applet));
	printf("I should be showing stuff\n");

	g_signal_connect (G_OBJECT (event_box),
                  G_CALLBACK (on_button_press),

	return TRUE;

                             "The Hello World Applet",

What am I doing wrong?
