These are for GTK3, i think. For GTK2 you need to do something like this:

  g_signal_connect(G_OBJECT(darea), "expose-event",
      G_CALLBACK(on_expose_event), NULL);

static gboolean
on_expose_event (GtkWidget      *widget,
                 GdkEventExpose *event,
                 gpointer        data)
  cairo_t *cr;

  cr = gdk_cairo_create (gtk_widget_get_window (widget));

  do_drawing (cr);

  cairo_destroy (cr);

  return FALSE;
