I am totally new to Linux so I don't know how to do anything :S I was trying to open Software Center ( to install spotify) but I always get this error message:

Please run this software with administrative rights. To do so, run this program with kdesudo.

Hope that somebody can help me with this

How do you open Software Center? –  zwets Sep 23 '13 at 9:41
you can't install Spotify via the software center. Go to spotify.com and they have a guide to follow. –  Alvar Sep 23 '13 at 9:53

Assuming this is the package "Software-center"

open a terminal window, and type

kdesudo software-center
