On the page https://developer.gnome.org/gtk2/stable/GtkFontSelection.html#gtk-font-selection-set-font-name
the function is declared as deprecated. Which means it will not be
possible to set the font initially.

I will try that on both 2.24 and 3.18.

Also, unfortunately, the page
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk2/stable/GtkFontSelection.html does
not list any signals. Which means I will not be able to catch a font
changing event and enable the "Apply"
In comparison the GTK3+ GtkFontChooser does emit a signal on the font
change and can set the font

Any idea how to do this under GTK+2?

Thank you.
