The goal: To embed images within text rendered by Pango (similar to how some chat clients display inline emoticons), using a Cairo backend. The research: After much Google-grinding I came across the pango_cairo_context_get_shape_renderer and pango_attr_shape_new functions in the original C library. The problem: I am unable to locate bindings for the aforementioned Pango functions in Ruby-Gnome, and I can't find an alternative way of embedding images. All help is much appreciated.
