    I have installed a Debian minimal system...

    ...Can I just download & compile this or will I need to do some preparation first

    That window manager seems old and no longer maintained.

    Can't help with Debian minimal, just know Ubuntu minimal.

    How could you tell that it is no longer maintained

    I may just stick to openbox then, but I would certainly be open to suggeations

    Last update was in 2011.

    Nothing wrong with openbox, if you want a few more bells and whistles there is fluxbox.
