[STICKY] Installing Spotify in Zorin 6, 7, or 8

Postby ov3rwatch » Fri Jan 24, 2014 9:23 am

Ok so Spotify is a great media player, it's main focus is free music streaming (oh and 100% legal!).

If you dont know about spotify, you can get info on their site: https://www.spotify.com/us/#features

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ [full command list without breaks at the bottom]

First thing we have to do is add the Spotify Repository to our sources.list. This is really easy to do with just 2 simple commands:

Code: Select all
sudo su
echo deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list
exit


In case you arent familiar, sudo su gives you administrative (aka root) access to the system so you can edit the file sources.list file, and the exit at the end logs you out of that root access
the second command adds the spotify repo to sources.list which is the file that tells Zorin where to look for all its available software

Now the next thing to do is add the authentication key for the spotify repo. this tells Zorin that it is safe to download and install software from the spotify repo.
We can do that with this command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59


Now that the system knows the software repo is safe one last command will update the software sources and install the spotify client:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client


And thats it. The Sporify client should appear inside your zorin menu or you can start it via terminal via the command:
Code: Select all
spotify


==========================================
NOTE: if you are running anything lower than Zorin 6 then it will complain that the dependancy libssl needs to be installed but is not in the repos. i may release another tut showinghow to get around that, but i would recommend just upgrading to 6+

AND as promised, all the commands not broken up

Note: im doing everything in this sert of commands in one shot so i wont be exiting sudo until after the last command
Code: Select all
sudo su
echo deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59
apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
exit


Enjoy!
