[cairo] text to postscript rendering

Hi there again,

i played a little bit with pango_cairo now and found no function for using
different fonts inside of a text. I could call the layout function everytime
i use a different font, but the text is then not drawn after the last
characters. Is there any function that would do this? Or is there a function
that gives me the XY coordinates of the last letter written?

Kind regards, juergen

Replace this with:

  pango_cairo_layout_line_path (cr, pango_layout_get_line (layout, 0));
  cairo_fill (cr);
