Installing maple tread and riser kits into my bi-level home. The stairs currently have linoleum on them. The lino peals up easy leaving a the paper glue layer on the stairs. Can I install the solid wood treads over the paper glue left behind without issues? Using adhesive and maybe some small brad nails?

Yes this is no big deal. Given that you might want to glue them anyway to reduce squeaking. If you have big glue pieces hit it with a putty knife but don't need to spend a ton of time on it.
