In general, you need to install the xserver's dependencies, then using git, clone my repository, and compile and install the code. I'm not a Debian user, so I'm not sure what's the best way to do this. Maybe someone else with Debian knowledge can help. If you can put up with more compiling, Gentoo has some nice overlays which automate much of this process. Thanks, Matt
