Does anyone know how can I get (manipulate) selected text in a Gtk::Text

You should tell us exactly what you want to do.
To get the actual text out of a Gtk::Text or Gtk::Entry widget, you
can do:
        $editable->get_chars($startpos, $endpos);

To get the actual character positions of the selection you will need
a couple of accessor I just added to the cvs version of Gtk::Editable.xs.
