I am tryingto do something which seems similar.? I am using Cairo to render to an ARGB surface.? I need to be able to render text using any system font (and any language) onto this surface.? I have added FontConfig, FreeType and Pango to my implementation as the initial steps to achieve this.? Is this thread indicating that this is not something I can expect to do until this is implemented?? I can currently find and select fonts using FontConfig and FreeType.??However, it seems the Pango / Cairo rendering is still limited to the base set of fonts Cairo supports.? Is there some other way to achieve my goal?
