FLTK on wikipedia says:
Fast Light Toolkit is a cross-platform widget library for graphical user interfaces, developed by Bill Spitzak and others. Made to accommodate 3D graphics programming, it has an interface to OpenGL, but it is also suitable for general GUI programming.

Stable release 1.3.5 (March 3, 2019; 2 months ago)

I'd suggest installing FLTK-FULL, and then perhaps looking at some example applications and see if they run on your box:

Neat stuff.
Cheers!

Yep... far superior to bloated, "insecure" (glibc attack surface) GTK/Qt.

Here is the eye candy ("Cario") version... :good:

(It's been a while since I've been in contact with Bill Spitzak but I asked him about this fork)
:hmmm: I do NOT have the "right" to tell anyone what they should do...
but I reserve the "right" to tell them what they should "consider".
