I installed Spotify successfully but it will not let me log in (error 409).

I tried running sudo ufw default allow, but it does not help.

Any ideas?

Are you running the windows version via wine? Or are you using the linux version? (you need premium to be able to use the linux version) – Alvar Sep 25 '11 at 6:59
Or if you are tired of spotify all together, use – Alvar Sep 25 '11 at 7:02

You need to have a Spotify Premium account. Perhaps you have installed the Linux preview client? It only supports Premium users. If you don't have a Premium account and don't want one, then you'll need to install wine and run the Windows version.

I just installed Spotify for Linux a few hours ago on an old machine running Lubuntu 13.04. It works fine on my free account. – Marc Jan 24 '14 at 4:53
Yes, it works now and has for a while. In 2011, we needed premium accounts to be able to use it. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jan 24 '14 at 8:46

Yes download spotify, then go to wine and browse C:/ drive for spotify (under downloads) and right click, open with wine windows program loader

That only works for Windows, no? – Braiam Jan 24 '14 at 12:53
Download the Linux version at Wine is a last resort when there's no Linux native program to do what you need to do. – Marc Jan 24 '14 at 23:42
