That's how I'm using the geometry right now, but I don't seem to get things
like alignment work. Even after setting a width on my layout, with right
alignment I get the exact same result as with left alignment (I assumed the
first glyph will get a very big X offset, to set the line start position, but
it's not happening)

I don't remember the details.  Check pango-renderer.c.  Perhaps a better
option is to subclass PangoRenderer for your application.

As for ligatures, is there any way of getting the underlying Harfbuzz handle
and do it there, even with some sort of hack?

Not right now.  If you want to disable them so badly and don't mind getting
yourself comfortable with gobject, then you can subclass PangoCairoFcFontMap
and override the fontset_key_substitute(), and in there set
PANGO_FC_FONT_FEATURES on the pattern...  You might need rather recent pango
and fontconfig for this to work.

Again, thank you for your responses!

    I think that's how you are supposed to call it.

    Keep accumulating the advance.  Just add X / Y offsets to the sum of advances
    of previous glyphs on the line, to get the position of current glyph.

    Currently you can't.
