You can't interact directly with X Windows. You have to wrap them in Gdk
windows. There is a function for it somewhere in the appropriate
gdk_x11_*. I am not sure whether it is bound in C++ or whether you'll
have to go to the C interface directly (it is an internal interface).

Once you have Gdk::Window, you can simply render the pixbuf there, since
Gdk::Window is a drawable.

You may need to use C for wrapping your X window in a Gdk window. Look
around in Gdk and Gdk/X11 documentation. The function is something like
gdk_window_forwigm or gdk_window_new_from_foreign or somesuch (it may
have the gdk_x11_ prefix, too).
