Funny enough I'm also fastening mini-conduit/trunking to the wall of my
coat cupboard, and used hot glue.
Apply the glue to the wall, not the conduit. It cools a bit too quickly
quickly on the conduit, which caused a mess as I had to redo that one.
For the deluxe method method of mounting, route out a trough channel
that will take the mini-conduct inside a strip of soft wood.
For us this affords some bump protection where in a cupboard we've
stored a Henry Vacuum cleaner. But I've also noticed placing 5 of these
assembled strips side-by-side vertically makes a nice decorative feature
on the wall, useful for routing cables down from a flat panel TV, and a
cinch to change.
Coat cupboards, the in place to be ;-)
Some comes with an adhesive backing already attached.
Peel off of protective film and push firmly in place.
Clean surface thoroughly first with something like IPA if the material
isn't affected by it.
You only really get one chance of positioning it, doesn't stick much
if you have move and try again.

I did this with the smallest screwfix trunking. It's been
up for over a year holding up to 3 lightweight surround
sound speaker cable pairs. (I'd use something larger
for mains wiring.)
I didn't do this. The trunking is stuck to emulsioned
plasterboard, in reasonable condition. I vacuumed off
any loose dust.
Oval conduit should be able to use double-sided tape or glue.
Round conduit will need to use conduit saddles to fasten it
(or perhaps a steady hand with a hot-melt glue gun).
Using mini-trunking (i.e. with a clip-on/over lid) will save
having to thread cable through, if that's an issue (e.g. not
a straight run of conduit).
Although I normally use self adhesive and find that works, I have
occasionally used a few small screws (typically 4 x 3/4 inch) when
fastening to a slightly curved surface. That still leaves room in the
small square type (not the very shallow one) for one run of 2.5 t&e or
two of 1.5 t&e.
