Spotify for Debian

Spotify for Linux
This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we’re running it ourselves and 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 we haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium and Unlimited subscribers.

So how do you get it? We’ve packaged it for Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 10.04 package and for Fedora 13, i386 and x86_64.

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

# 2. If you want to verify the downloaded packages,
# you will need to add our public key
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys 4E9CFF4E

# 3. Run apt-get update
sudo apt-get update

# 4. Install spotify!
sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

# Debian reminders!

Network issues when webpages started to not load, or just loads the first page.

Turned out to be to much with the default value for TCP/IP with 1500 MTU. I manually set the MTU to 1300 and all is good.

My fstab reminder:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.


# Use ’blkid’ to print the universally unique identifier for a

# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices

# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
