loading an external font using pango

Hello list,

The subject already says what I need.

Somewhere in the example pages of Pango i found the following code.

PangoFontDescription * pango_font_desc =
pango_font_description_from_string("Sans Bold 12");

This works for me.

But I dont want to use Sans font. I have my own ttf font. I have the
path of the font.  I know the size.

Now what should I right so that pango_font_desc will be filled with
font path and size?

I used this,
pango_font_description_set_family(pango_font_desc, this->font_family.c_str());

But it doesn't work.

how do I replace the pango_font_description_from_string("Sans Bold
12") call with font path and font size call?
