How to install Spotify In Linux Mint (DEB Archive, Without WINE!)

Hi friends, today I want to share this nice application. Spotify is a music streaming service providing digital rights management-restricted content from record labels including Sony, EMI, Warner Music Group, and Universal. With this app you can browse or search any artist, album, or genre and listen to it for “free”.
1) To install the app you will only need to download the “.deb” archive that is in this link
32bits

repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.4.183.g644e24e.428-1_i386.deb

64bits

repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.11.27.g2b1a638.81-1_amd64.deb

2) Install it!!
3) It may ask you to install 4 or 5 extra packages, if it does just install them!
4) Enjoy!!
:mrgreen:

Possibly worth mentioning that Spotify for Linux Debian is a preview version at present and unsupported, as noted here, but otherwise thanks for the info :)

Post installation : you might want to adjust the cache for Spotify. It loves to eat cache and may leave you with +2G less available storage space in a short amount of time.
