Yesterday the Spotify client was updated [I'm running Debian stable]. Is there any way to revert to the previous version?
Why would you do that?
It is possible you could find your previously installed spotify-client package on your system.
If you find an onder version you want to install, (in my example 188.8.131.521) run
dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/spotify-client_184.108.40.2061.g9d720389-21_amd64.deb
to install that older package.
To hold the spotify-client package on a specific version, see https://askubuntu.com/questions/18654/how-to-prevent-updating-of-a-specific-package
The new client is a little bit glitchy, but overall it works fine. I just preferred the previous one. I have no previous .deb in
so I suppose I'll just stick with the new client. I've scoured the internet and no repo seems to have the older version, they've all updated to the new one.
Now that I remember, the older version also had a glitch whereby the second track playthrough of any album would never display a progress bar. But it 's all fine. Thanks for your help.
