Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I ran the following

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

There was no feedback of any kind. Just the cursor returned. When I go to look for the application it is not there. Since other users report success I am hoping there is something elementary that I am missing.

Try the official package, its been a while since they released a preview client for linux.

Basic instructions:

  • Add the repo

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free'

  • Accept spotify server key

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59

  • Update repos and install spotify

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
