sudo apt-key add -- is deprecated, please update the Linux guide

When adding the keyfile using

curl -sS https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey_0D811D58.gpg | sudo apt-key add - 

you get a message in the terminal that the command is deprecated (also known as not being used anymore) so therefore the Linux guide to add your repo is flawed.

 

A temporary workaround to this is to highlight the link

https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey_0D811D58.gpg

and then download it with the browser and then click on the Dash menu followed by opening Programs and Updates and then clicking the Authentication tab and clicking the button to manually add the key file.

Confirmed. Please update the spotify installation guide for Linux. I really hate to use spotify on my web browser.

PD: As the tittle says, seems the problem is about the key.

Somebody gave the instructions already they just have to update it on the download page..:
