Spotify Installation

Hello,

 

I've tried to update my spotify on my Ubuntu 12.04, but after that it doesn't open anymore. I used the exactly directions from the spotify web site.

# 1. Add the Spotify repository signing key to be able to verify downloaded packages
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys BBEBDCB318AD50EC6865090613B00F1FD2C19886

# 2. Add the Spotify repository
echo deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list

# 3. Update list of available packages
sudo apt-get update

# 4. Install Spotify
sudo apt-get install spotify-client

The icon appears on recent apps but it isn't woking!

Also, I've tried to remove using sudo apt-get remove spotify-client and I saw the icon was gone. Later, I've installed as the same way, but not succeed.

I've checked in the directories under the terminal and I have the following messages:

ivan@laptopHP:/usr/bin$ ./spotify

/usr/share/spotify/spotify: symbol lookup error: /usr/share/spotify/spotify: undefined symbol: g_type_add_instance_private

 

ivan@laptopHP:/usr/share/spotify$ ./spotify

Could somebody help me, please me?

 

Thanks!

Sorry, the dependencies are not clearly specified in the package file, but you need at least Ubuntu 14.04 to run Spotify these days.
