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".
Options are:
 -psf <file>          Session file to open at startup
 -rom <file>          ROM file to use at startup
 -ram_size <size>     Amount of RAM (in K) to emulate at startup
 -device <name>       Device type to use at startup
 -skin <name>         Name of skin to use for the device
 -load_apps <name(s)> Comma-seperated list of names of .prc files to
load at startup
 -run_app <name>      Name of file to automatically run at startup
 -quit_on_exit        Cause Poser to quit after -run application exits
 -pref <key=value>    Change a preference setting

 -bg2 color
 -bg color
 -di[splay] host:n.n
 -fg color
 -g[eometry] WxH+X+Y
 -na[me] classname
