I'm very new to Gtk. I'm trying to understand how Gtk
is using Pango for text-rendering.
I've just compiled and installed atk-1.2.4,
glib-2.2.3, gtk+-2.2.4 and pango-1.2.5 in my
machine. I'm able to run the "Hello World" program as
specified in the Gtk tutorial.
I edited the source code of the Hello World program
in Yudit and replaced "Hello World" with some
Devanagari text. Now I run the program; but the
Devanagari text doesn't come up. I've one OpenType
Hindi font (Raghu) installed in my machine. But how do
I inform Pango to pick up this font for Hindi? Is
there some configuration file for Pango?
What are the steps that I need to do so that I can
use Indian language texts in Gtk widgets like utton,
