That much looks just fine.
That call you don't need. The show_text operation is a drawing
operation and should show your text. This subsequent fill will instead
fill the current path. From the above code snippet it's not obvious if
you have a path or not. If not, then the fill should do nothing, so it
would be harmless in that case, but still unnecessary.
Other than that I don't see any obvious problems. You might print out
cairo's status value, (along the lines of ctx.status_to_string
(ctx.status())), to see if cairo has detected any error.
Good luck, and have fun with cairo.
