Spotify for Linux…..about time :)


This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but spotify will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings, there are issues regarding decoding of local music on the Linux platform so we haven’t included support for local files in this version. As Spotify haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium & Unlimited subscribers.

So how do you get it? We’ve packaged the first release as a Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 10.04 package.

# 1. Add this line to your list of repositories by 
#    editing your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb stable non-free

# 2. Run apt-get update
# 3. (optional) If you want to verify the downloaded packages,
#    you will need to add our public key

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 4E9CFF4E
gpg --export 4E9CFF4E |sudo apt-key add -

# 4. Run apt-get install spotify-client-qt spotify-client-gnome-support
