niklas@niklas-thinkpad:~$ spotify: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
This error occurs since a couple of weeks. Before that it worked just fine. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and tried also a reinstallation on my machine. I heard about a quite similiar error on Ubuntu 14.04, but it seems no one but me has trouble with 12.04.
Hi, I am having the same problem here, but I have Linuxmint 13 Xfce since I have an not-so-old-but-a-bit-older computer.
I have read and followed I don't know how many blogs and posts about installing Spotify. I have installed, uninstalled, added keys, checked and edited the source.list and source.list.d file/folder... there is no human way for me to run spotify.
I even tried typing "spotify" on a terminal, then pressing TAB... nothing, not even 1 miserable binary appears, and I can see the Spotify icon in my menu, under Multimedia. But! When I typed "spotify" on the terminal without pressing TAB, I got some signs of life from my computer:
spotify: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So! after a bit of research on internet, I tried this:
sudo apt-get install libudev1:i386
And I got the following answer from my computer: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package libudev1:i386 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package 'libudev1:i386' has no installation candidate
In other words: Computer says NO!
Is there any way, anything that I can do to get Spotify running on this computer?
