Well, using Firefox you can always install it the regular way (The
browser prompt, when it says "Click here to install addition packages
needed to display the page correctly", or whatever).

Honestly that is the easiest way to do it, since I know a lot of
people have had troubles doing it the "Debian" way.

Or you could always get the tar.gz package from Adobe and run that,
the installer seems to work 100% of the time without any problems.
