True, you are right. I had a look at a bunch of examples and many do it like this. They invalidate parts or the whole widget in a timer callback and redraw it in the on_draw function.

I just had a look at the links. In the example it is done almost the same like I do (if I got it right), though it must not be the "right way". But even placing gtk_widget_queue_draw into my draw_callback funtion does not prevent the window from flickering.

It must be someting inside the Socket and Plug of GTK, because when I simply add the drawing_area to the window (without any socket or plug involved) everything works fine.
