Installing beadboarding on a ceiling


My husband and i are trying to install beadboarding on our kitchen ceiling. we were told to put adhesive on first and then use a nail gun to secure it. well everytime we try to nail it up, the nails go right through and the board falls down.
what are we doing wrong????
we tried the nail gun on a baseboard to make sure it was working properly, and it worked perfectly.
we then tried to nail a piece of paper onto the ceiling and that didnt even work...
seriously, what is the deal????

You need to adjust the air pressure of the compressor and/or the depth control on the gun. You're shooting the nail through the board. The beadboard is both thin and soft.
