Perhaps you should consider looking into Ubuntu (or one of the variants, depending on your window manager preference). It's based on Debian, but slightly more user friendly and more up-to-date.
In the future, please keep the user/distrobution specific support in separate threads. A lot of people may be interested in the developments regarding the actual bug, but completely uninterested in how to install unsupported packages in Debian.
