1) Add the backports repository by editing /etc/apt/sources.lst
(must be root) and adding the following line:
deb http://www.backports.org/debian/ lenny-backports main contrib non-free
Run the following:
#aptitude install debian-backports-keyring
(Ignore any warning that occur with the above 2 commands, the install
will correct those) If you run #aptitude update again the warnings
should be gone
2) Install Adobe Flash
#aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree
3)You shouldn't need this step, but just in case run
and make sure the correct one
(/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so) is selected. It should
be the current default.
4) Start Iceweasel and go the location about:plugins and you should see
the latest Flash.
The biggest frustration with Gimp 2.6 has been that pesky toolbox
window always in the way over what I'm working on. Turns out it's easy
to make it act sanely. Try this: Go to Edit; Preferences; click Window
Management; and under Window Manager Hints, change "Hint for the
Toolbox" from "Utility Window" to "Normal Window." Then click OK.
I would have thought this would be called "Always On Top" (Gnome has an
Always On Top setting, but it doesn't help here) or something useful.
"Utility Window" doesn't explain that it's an "Always in your way"
window... someone needs to find better words!

GD under PHP not installed by default
Wordpress and other PHP systems were reporting errors about
"imagecreatefromjpeg not defined" ... that's a PHP built-in function...
what gives? Somehow I didn't have the GD image manipulation module
loaded into PHP. Here's how to do that.
# sudo apt-get install php5-gd
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Locales not installed by default
(reported solved in Debian 5.0.2)
Apt-get was reporting huge batches of errors like:
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
/usr/bin/mandb: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct
manconv: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct
The solution is to:
apt-get install locales
and I added the locale: en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
