It is Slackware 10.2, with all packages updated to -current. I did not
install from a TGZ, but from source. There were a *lot* of warnings and
I had to tweak the code, because pose uses old FLTK names. Most of the
warnings though do not seem very harmful (pointer casts, deprecated ways
of doing things, etc).

Do you have any idea where I could start in tweaking the code? Because
the buttons do work, it doesn't seem to be a toolkit problem.

-h gives options (though it is not 'help', but 'don't understand',
unfortunately none seem to be connected to the touchscreen:
bf@laptop-bartf:~$ pose -h
Don't understand the command line parameter "-h".
