Using Pango for Batch Processing

Hi guys,

I'm interested in using Pango to set type in OpenType fonts to be saved as PNG images. I've done some googling and I can't find any examples on how to use the library or pango-view to do this without GTK. The idea is to use either pango-view or the Pango Ruby wrapper to convert text into PNGs on the fly from a linux server that's not running gtk, for use as titles in web pages.

I've got pango-view installed, but when I run it I get:

% pango-view -q --text "hi there" -o hi.png                                                                                                     pango-view: Cannot open display

Any pointers would be great!
