spotify linux dependencies

spotify stopped working for me on linux (debian testing) a few weeks ago after an `apt-get upgrade` or an `apt-get autoclean`. today i started it from the command line and received this error:

 

spotify: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

i was able to correct it by running `apt-get install libssl1.0.2`

 

perhaps this package should be added as a dependency for the debian package

Hi there and welcome to the community,

 

Thank you for reporting this issue. I can pass this on the right guys for you. Can you let me know:

 - What OS + Version you are on?

 - What Spotify version you have?

 

Did Spotify update, or did libssl update to a newer version?

OS + Version: Debian GNU/Linux testing, code name Stretch.

 

Spotify version: 1:1.0.25.127.g58007b4c-22

 

I believe it was an update in libssl, more precisely the replacement of the package libssl1.0.0 with libssl1.0.2. Note that the version numbers  are part of the package name.

 

Additional information which might be useful:

Debian 8/stable/jessie has a package libssl1.0.0 https://packages.debian.org/jessie/libssl1.0.0

Debian testing/stretch has a package libssl1.0.2 https://packages.debian.org/stretch/libssl1.0.2

This wont work. Spotify failed to make libssl1.0.0 a dependancy. You need to install it manually. 

Get it from the debian repo (note, if you're running debian testing then you are have ver 1.0.2 which doesn't work). You need debian stable (jessie) libssl1.0.0

 

once you download it, use gdebi to install it. 

sudo gdebi  ~/Downloads/libssl1.0.0_1.0.1k-3+deb8u4_amd64.deb

keep track of it - and once spotify updates to using 1.0.2 lib, then manually delete this package.

Thanks. That was my point; I was submitting a bug report and a proposed approach for a fix, not requesting help. However, your instructions might be helpful to someone on an older version of Debian than the one I'm using and the one I described the solution for.

They have been pretty clear that they primarily support Ubuntu LTS releases, but also try to support other Ubuntu versions and Debian. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS has the package "libssl1.0.0". They could fix this in the "DEBIAN/control" file (modified when building the deb package) by doing this in the dependencies section: "libssl1.0.0 | libssl1.0.2". This would choose the one available.

run this on your terminal:

dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.1_amd64.deb
