Well if you have that running the extra things you need are X, matchbox,
glib and GTK+. The rest of GPE basically builds on these components. For
certain applications you might need to resolve more dependencies like
dbus, libmimedir, ..
There is a dependency map at
The recommended way to build everything is to use OE (openembedded). For
more info check www.openembedded.org. OE already supports the
at91sam9263ek. I do not know how similar this board is but it might make
it easy to build for yours starting from that.

Well contributions are more than welcome!
Also take note that the GPE project has moved and is to be found on
gpe.linuxtogo.org. Due to issues with the hosting there is still a GPE
page on handhelds.org, so we apologize for the confusion.
