Thanks for your answer,

i still use rsvg to render SVG files. But i have some trouble with rsvg, not all SVG files where accepted by rsvg_handle_render_cairo(). 

Here two different SVG Files:

1) Accept 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN"
<!-- Created with Sodipodi ("http://www.sodipodi.com/") -->
   viewBox="0 0 254 192"

2) Doesn´t Accept

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 20001102//EN"
<svg width="539.963pt" height="803.211pt" viewBox="0 0 1108.81 803.211" xml:space="preserve" preserveAspectRatio="xMinYMid meet" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:daisy="http://www.daimlerchrysler.com" contentStyleType="text/css" contentScriptType="text/ecmascript" zoomAndPan="magnify">

No -- cairo is just a drawing library, not an SVG renderer.  At one time, cairo included a primitive SVG renderer for the sake of demonstration, but that is not part of the library's core goals.

You'll need to use another library built atop cairo (like rsvg) to render SVGs to a cairo context.
