You're welcome!

The guide in the wiki works fine in ubuntu 18.04: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/ADE_2.0.1_Linux

The step which is not in the guide is to install Python2.7 and Pycrypto. That is needed for the calibre plugin to find the relevant key.

Another thing I usually do is to create a .desktop entry for the program that handles the .ascm mimetype. For that I download an icon and store it on /usr/share/pixmaps/ade.png and create the new file in /usr/share/applications/ade.desktop with contents:

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Adobe Digital Editions
Exec=ade %f
Icon=ade
Terminal=false
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true
Categories=Office;Viewer;
MimeType=application/vnd.adobe.adept+xml
As you can notice "ade" is just a wrapper for the entire program invokation under wine, which in my case is:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
WINEPREFIX=~/.win32 wine ~/.win32/drive_c/Program\ Files/ADE/DigitalEditions.exe
but needs to match the path where you installed wine and the program.
