Spotify on LMDE

Postby Blackhawks13 on Tue Feb 25, 2014 10:13 pm

I switched over to LMDE and am quite happy, it runs much better on my system. Only problem so far is that i couldn't install Spotify according to the instructions on the Spotify site. I would get this error: The following packages have unmet dependencies:
spotify-client : Depends: libssl0.9.8 but it is not installable. I was able to install this by downloading off the Debian Squeeze package site, Then i could install with apt-get. This might be common knowledge but i spent a bit of time googling to figure it out and i thought the info might help somebody!

Interesting. On Spotify website, you learn that Spotify has been coded for Debian Wheezy and not for Testing.
That's why you had to pick this lib from Squeeze repos. :shock:

A guy has solved the problem for Jessie. Use with caution! ... d-p/640890
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

With LMDE 2014 64 bits all worked perfectly.

In a terminal (Alt-Control-T) I opened the sources list:

Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list

and I added this repository to the list:

Code: Select all
deb stable non-free

I saved and closed it.

Then in the terminal I added the public key:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 94558F59

Then in the terminal, I updated the sources:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update

And then I installed spotify:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install spotify-client

It works very well.
