I think it fairly unlikely Adobe will port to Linux.
They only have minimal support on the other platforms; and after months still haven't fixed the myriad bugs in ADE2.0 on Windows and Mac.
Does ADE work under Wine? You might have a better chance with ADE1.7.2 than with ADE2.0 under Wine.
Thank you for your quick reply!
I then read this tutorial for setting up ADE in Wine:
I don't have an e-reader, but double clicking on the ascm file opened it in ADE under Wine. Then it downloaded a protected PDF in my home directory for offline use. ADE for Windows ran surprisingly fast on Ubuntu 12.10, and it opened up all the notes/bookmarks and pages. I haven't found a problem with it yet other than trying to open the ascm file from within the ADE interface.
Some filetypes (eg .acsm) won't open in ADE using the file open (ctrl-O) option, but will open using drag drop from Explorer onto ADE.
File open not working is a stupidity (bug) that applies to ADE even in its native environment; you will probably find drag-drop works in Wine as well.
