ok already got it working - thanks a lot!
A simple question now, i used this code:
cairo_select_font_face (cr, "Sans", CAIRO_FONT_SLANT_NORMAL, CAIRO_FONT_WEIGHT_BOLD);
cairo_set_font_size (cr, 90.0);
cairo_move_to (cr, 10.0, 135.0);
cairo_text_path(cr, "test text" );
and it works very well, but when i now use special characters like $, € there is no useful output. Anything known about that?
Are there any other functions to select fonts? Because i cant exchange "Sans" with any other font i have in MS Word.

Yes, simply do cairo_text_path() followed by cairo_fill() or
