As the title says, I know that there one time was a download button to install spotify but i dont have it. Is there something else you have to do for 1.2?

I downloaded it from www.clementine-player.org, I also tried it in arch just to see if it worked there but same problem.

    By the way, you must have Spotify Premium account to use this plugin. – user295297 Jun 20 '14 at 12:24

You can try to install the spotify plugin manually from the clementine repository.
You should grab the last blob & libspotify.so files.

1) Close Clementine application.

  • pkill clementine

2) Intall wget to download the plugin.

  • sudo apt-get install wget

For 32-bit

3) Create the folder structure for the plugin.

  • mkdir -p -m 775 ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-32bit/

4) Go to the plugin folder.

  • cd ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-32bit/

5) Download the plugin.

  • wget http://spotify.clementine-player.org/version14-32bit/blob

  • wget http://spotify.clementine-player.org/version14-32bit/libspotify.so.12.1.45

6) Give the correct perms to the plugin.

  • chmod 775 blob libspotify.so.12.1.45

Edit as per relaytheurgency comment

7) Rename the libspotify.so.12.1.45 to libspotify.so.12

  • mv libspotify.so.12.1.45 libspotify.so.12

For 64-bit

3) Create the folder structure for the plugin.

  • mkdir -p -m 775 ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-64bit/

4) Go to the plugin folder.

  • cd ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-64bit/

5) Download the plugin.

  • wget http://spotify.clementine-player.org/version14-64bit/blob

  • wget http://spotify.clementine-player.org/version14-64bit/libspotify.so.12.1.45

6) Give the correct perms to the plugin.

  • chmod 775 blob libspotify.so.12.1.45

Edit as per relaytheurgency comment.

7) Rename the libspotify.so.12.1.45 to libspotify.so.12

  • mv libspotify.so.12.1.45 libspotify.so.12

8) Open Clementine and go to Menubar > Tools > Preferences > Internet providers > Spotify to set your account.

NOTE: In this example I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit with Clementine 1.2

Hope this helps.

    Roman Raguet's answer is nearly complete. The final step to solve your login problem is to rename libspotify.so.12.1.45 to libspotify.so.12 in the terminal: mv ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-64bit/libspotify.so.12.1.45 ~/.config/Clementine/spotifyblob/version14-64bit/libspotify.so.12 Alternatively you could just do this graphically in Nautilus. Make sure to change the path name depending on your needs. – relaytheurgency Oct 26 '13 at 1:41
  • Awesome, thank you @relaytheurgency for the last pice of the puzzle. – Kempe Oct 26 '13 at 12:18
  • @relaytheurgency...Thanks for the info. I edited my answer to rename the library. – Roman Raguet Oct 26 '13 at 12:32
