How can I install Adobe Digital Editions on Ubuntu?

I've read that this is possible using Wine, but I can't download the installer from the Adobe page (as this installer is an online flash installer and requires Windows).

(I need to open the book I have purchased which is currently in .acsm format)

The clue was in the text underneath the install box:

If you have trouble installing Digital Editions, see the installation TechNote.

See the "Manually install Adobe Digital Editions for Windows" section. That has a direct link to download an .exe setup file.

I won't link it from here as they will probably update the link in time.
