Hi, fellow penguin fans!
Today we've pushed version 0.9.10.17 of the Linux desktop client to our public repo. Just update your system!
Linux specific changes:
- Now built on Ubuntu 12.04 (making it incompatible with some debian versions, see below)
- Track change notifications via libnotify
- OpenSSL is now version 1.0.x
- Local files playback works with libavcodec54
- A file called collectionCache.bnk is created in the home folder (it should be in .cache/spotify/Users/<spotify-username>-user/)
- It still doesn't work to drag from an HTML5 view to a legacy view (such as the sidebar).
- On first start, the HTML5 views may not appear (just empty black views), try restarting the app if it happens
- Some users have reported problems with the new track change notifications. If you experience problems, you can start the client with "spotify --ui.track_notifications_enabled=false", or you can edit the file called ~/.config/spotify/Users/<your-spotify-username>-user/prefs and add a line with "ui.track_notifications_enabled=false". Sorry for not having this option available in the UI.
- No 32-bit build is available
- This build is not compatible with debian squeeze or wheezy
If you don't already have the Linux client installed, install like this:
# 1. Add our repository. As root or with sudo, create # a file called /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list and add # "deb http://repository.spotify.com/stable non-free" to it. # Here's a one-liner: sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://repository.spotify.com/stable non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list' # 2. If you want to verify the downloaded packages, # you will need to add our public key sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59 # 3. Run apt-get update sudo apt-get update # 4. Install spotify! sudo apt-get install spotify-client You don't have a debian based system? Well, it's still possible to get things running. Either you convert the debian package to something else using alien, or you can just download and extract the stuff you need from the package. There is no need to install the client, it can be run from anywhere. # 1. Get the right filename SPOTIFY_DEB=http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.10.17.g4129e1c.78-1_`uname -m | sed s/x86_64/amd64/ | sed s/i686/i386/`.deb # 2. Download the package wget repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/$SPOTIFY_DEB # 3. Extract the required parts ar p $SPOTIFY_DEB data.tar.gz | tar -zx --strip-components=3 ./opt/spotify/spotify-client # 4. Go in to the extracted folder cd spotify-client # 5. Setup symlinks to libs (NOTE: this script assumes Fedora 17, edit to suit your needs) ./linklibs-fedora.sh # 6. Optionally register icons and menu item # Note: for the menu item to work, you need to ensure # spotify is in your $PATH, either by symlinking # it from /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin, or by adding # the spotify-client folder to your $PATH ./register.sh
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey @AyTiRuppi :)
It is a known issue that having multiple locales breaks Spotify radio on Linux, full details and information on how to fix are over on this thread.
As for discover, if the above doesn't fix it too, if you could http://pastebin.com/ us the console output that might be handy. :)
