I'm not sure if it is even possible to run DosBox + GMU at one time (if
fails for me).

However, you can run the GMU and "imgv" or "nupdf" at one time
(try Ctrl+Alt+F? to switch the running apps - the F? will be probably F6
and F7).
I just tried this (but without the gmenu2x, I don't use it).

If you want to run GMU in backround you can. But it is recommended to turn
off GMU screensaver.

Just edit the file /home/root/.config/gmu/gmu.naonote.conf and change
line SecondsUntilBacklightPowerOff=15 to SecondsUntilBacklightPowerOff=15

It runs on framebuffer, of course.

As far as I know, there is no mouse emulation at the moment.
