How to install the Spotify client in PeppermintOS 2

Spotify needs to be installed from this PPA (Personal Package Archive):

So first you’ll need to import the PPA’s gpg key … open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), and run:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 4E9CFF4E


gpg --export 4E9CFF4E |sudo apt-key add -

Now add the PPA to your /etc/apt/sources.list by running:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list'

Update the package cache with:

sudo apt-get update

Then install Spotify with:

sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

You’ll then find Spotify in the menu at - Sound & Video>Spotify

Got an error on the last step. :o

bally@bally-laptop ~ $ E: Unable to locate package spotify-client--qt

same error for me

Managed to fix this error, it’s just a typo.

Last step should read:

sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

thanks for that BkS

can I sign up without having a facebook account (definitely don’t want a facebook account)
i had spotify on an old windows m/c a few years ago, never had a facebook account
if not, can you recommend something similar

I haven’t the foggiest … I don’t have a Fekbook account either. :slight_smile:

I only posted the instructions, because someone asked me how to install it.


Sorry for the typo … fixed in original posting now :slight_smile:

You can sign up for spotify from their site, here:

Yeh, but it forces you to join Fekbook :frowning:

I’d like to use Spotify, but have NO intention of joining Fekbook :wink:

Well that’s a first. :S

I’ve had my Spotify account for donkeys and I never had to register to Fekbook in order to register. Good marketing though, haha.

EDIT: I think Facebook bought Spotify. Hahahaha.

EDIT 2: Just googled it, they did. Ha.

its was all about choice, but thats being taken away.

but i’ve made ‘my’ choice

hi Mark

many thanks

sudo apt-get remove spotify-client-qt

there you go )
