You may have to adjust cairo_rectangle's arguments to more intuitive or bigger values or make use of cairo_scale because it will draw an extremely small rectangle that is barely visible. Pasting this snippet to replace the text function calls in the sample FAQ's hello.c will yield no visible rectangle so you have to insert cairo_scale (cr, 120, 120);. When it doesn't work the first time, you may be tempted to insert a path creation code from API reference manual on Paths but don't like:<br><br>
