Anyways the Kobo software is only needed to setup the device once. After that, can be fully managed via Wifi (including firmware updates) or using tools such as Calibre
I'm not sure how you were able to download the Kobo software on Unbuntu. When I tried to install the desktop application I only found downloads available for PC or Mac users.

Calibre is a great tool but does not handle DRM to my knowledge and Adobe Digital Editions is also not available on Linux at this time.

I did set up Kobo using a Mac and I have no problems with the Wifi. My concern or better put, my desire is to manage my book collection from my laptop using Linux where I spend 98% of my on-line time.
