Keep in mind that I have exactly zero clue about X programming, but that
said ...

The first Google hit for XVisualInfo is this:
The page says that this structure is defined in X11/Xutil.h.
Using the package content search at you will
find that Xutil.h is in package libx11-dev,

Regarding XFlush, it was not quite as straightforward to find that it is
defined in X11/Xlib.h, which again according to, is
also in libx11-dev.
