I agree that setting this up is a bit too complex, and it would be nice if there was a standalone widget that this everything for you.
Meanwhile I tried converting your widget into C (with the intention of replacing the font selection widget in gucharmap), and something is not working. I get lots of warnings about: (gucharmap:30880): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 17:41:07.804: gtk_entry_set_text: assertion 'text != NULL' failed This happens e.g. when I'm using the up down arrows within the text entry. Btw, this happens also if I only replace (without setting up all the connections), gtk_combo_box_new() with gtk_combo_box_new_with_entry(). I'm still trying to figure out what went wrong.
