Hellow! I have created 2 FileChooser buttons with following lines:

GtkWidget *fc_button_i, *fc_button_o; //global
fc_button_i = gtk_file_chooser_button_new ("Browse", GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN);
gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (box1), fc_button_i, TRUE, TRUE, 0);
gtk_widget_show (fc_button_i);

fc_button_o = gtk_file_chooser_button_new ("Browse", GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SAVE);
gtk_box_pack_start (GTK_BOX (box2), fc_button_o, TRUE, TRUE, 0);
gtk_widget_show (fc_button_o);

First of all I do not see button's names "Browse" I have selected. How do I get them visible?

Then, as it is shown on attached image, second button does not appear and errors are printed in console when button is in GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SAVE mode. If I select GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN for the same button all is ok. What could be wrong?

You need to read API docs more carefully. (Here they are.)

First parameter to gtk_file_chooser_button_new() is not button label but title of the dialog that will be displayed for selecting file. Button itself holds the name of the selected file and thus cannot have label attached to it.

Second, docs clearly state this:
API docs wrote:
The GtkFileChooserButton supports the GtkFileChooserActions GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN and GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SELECT_FOLDER.
This should explain why button is not created.
