There is no apt-package for FlexGet available yet. It has to be installed from PyPI. In order to prepare the necessary build environment the following packages have to be installed:

aptitude install python2.6 python-setuptools

The next line downloads and builds FlexGet itself:

easy_install flexget

The following step is optional. In case an interface to transmission-daemon is of use, the according FlexGet-plugin is installed like this:

easy_install transmissionrpc
