Thanks alot for this solution miza, I recall having to fix this myself manually a few times and it's not fun. Just wanted to let you know that this was greatly appreciated.

 

And I also appreciate replying to this thread and I'd also like to add that I very much appreciate a Linux client and I can deal with using workarounds like this and having the software slightly out of date, as long as it's still usable :)

 

Thanks again!

If anybody's interested: I've created a 32-bit version as well, and added them to our SolydXK community repository.

You can download the packages directly from here: <link removed - mod.>

 

They install fine, but there's still a problem that needs to be solved: I couldn't get it to play any file.

I opened a topic for that on our forum: http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=3844

 

It probably has something to do with pulseaudio

Hi.  Debian Jessie is stable now and has been released for over a month.  I still cannot install Spotify, whether I add the stable or testing repo.

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

I'm a long-term Debian user, and used Spotify on Wine. Now that winSpotify won't start anymore (broken on my wheezy) I looked at what's going on with Spotify Linux development, so

 

I installed Spotify on Debian GNU/Linux 8.1 like instructed here: https://www.spotify.com/fi/download/linux/

No errors occurred.

I can see the Spotify icon on Applications menu > Sound & Video. Clicking on it, does nothing.

 

Ran spotify in terminal:

spotify: error while loading shared libraries: libgcrypt.so.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

How to fix this one?

I already found myself using the libgcrypt "fix".

 

Downloaded .deb from here: https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/amd64/libgcrypt11/download

and installed using native tools.

 

Spotify runs now, significantly faster than under Wine.

 

Thank you.

Hey @equex,


You can get your hands on the .deb package here. This package is working with libssl1.0.0.

You will need to install it manually using 

 

dpkg -i spotify-client_1.0.14.12*.deb
