Abstract: By employing the standard isometric imbedding of $ C{P^n}$ into the Euclidean space, a classification theorem for full, minimal, $ 2$-type surfaces in $ C{P^n}$ that are not $ \pm $ holomorphic is given. All such compact minimal surfaces are either totally real minimal surfaces in $ C{P^2}$ or totally real superminimal surfaces in $ C{P^3}$ and $ C{P^4}$. In the latter case, they are locally unique. Moreover, some eigenvalue inequalities for compact minimal surfaces of $ C{P^n}$ with constant Kaehler angle are shown.
