Add these lines to /etc/apt/sources.list (they will be added when spotify is installed in sources.d):

 

deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free
deb http://repository.spotify.com testing non-free

I have copied the lines on the terminal but it appears to me "permission denied". Why?

you need to be root to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add these lines to it.

Then you have to run

apt-get update

to refresh the package lists from the repositories, including spotify now.

At this point,

apt-cache policy spotify-client 

should show the client to install.

[once you've installed spotify-client, it will add a spotify.list file to /etc/apt/sources.d/ directory and you can remove the two lines you added to sources.list]

to be root. Right, how?

You should read the basics of system admin for your distribution to learn  how to get root priviliges and update your system.

 

Is this a shared system that someone else administers? Only root can normally install and configure new packages. If you're not the admin you won't be able to do this.

I can recommend using the link provided , i have installed Spotify using this method on numerous Linux distros. If you are running Ubuntu you shouldn't need to be root for installation

My version of distro is Xubuntu. Maybe i can't be root for security reason. Is possible?

You can install Spotify by editing your sources list which is why you would need to be root , but since you are running Xubuntu which is a flavour of Ubuntu you should be able to install using the software centre which is called Gnome Software in the application menu
