In Linux, I have done it using xautomation. More specifically, for
console applications I use Xvfb to create a virtual X server of the
size of the splash screen, then xte (from xautomation) to make a click
on the proper coordinates. The Xvfb server is made the size of the
splash screen so that the button always is at the same coordinates,
and it is not necessary to search for it with visgrep.
I put everything in a script to launch Xvfb, set the display variable,
launch the runtime application, call xte to click, then kill the Xvfb
server at the end. I copy the Xvfb and xte binaries into the
distribution directory, so that it does not depend on those being
installed where the program is used.
