Installing Spotify 9.10 (may 20), 9.11 (july 2) on fedora 20 64 bits

UPDATE : Tested for 9.11 on July 2

 

Remove any old version of spotify :

yum remove “*spotify*”

rm -rf /usr/local/share/spotify*

 

Remove any configuration file of the last spotify version :

rm -rf /home/$USER/.config/spotify

rm -rf /home/$USER/.cache/spotify

 

Download the debian package at http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.10.17.g4129e1c.78-1_amd64.deb  http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.11.26.g995ec04.78-1_amd64.deb:

wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.9.11.26.g995ec04.78-1_amd64.deb

 

Install alien to convert the deb to RPM :

sudo yum install alien

 

Convert the deb to RPM with alien :

fakeroot alien -r spotify-client_0.9.10.17.g4129e1c.78-1_amd64.deb

 

Install the rpm :

sudo rpm -ivh –nodeps –force spotify-client-0.9.10.17.g4129e1c.78-2.x86_64.rpm

 

You will very probably have problems of dependencies to old libraries when launching spotify, like for libssl.so.1.0.0 , libudev.so.0 and libcrypto.so.1.0.0, I made a tarball with them.

 

Download oldlibs.tar :

wget https://www.tombarbette.be/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/oldlibs.tar.gz

 

Untar them :

tar -zxvf oldlibs.tar.gz

 

Copy them to /usr/lib64 :

cp -rf oldlibs/* /usr/lib64/

 

Remove the tarball :

rm -rf oldlibs*

 

If you don’t have any shorcut to launch spotify, copy the desktop entry :

cp -rf /opt/spotify/spotify-client/spotify.desktop /usr/share/applications/

 

If when you type “spotify” it doesn’t launch anything (and say this command is not found) :

sudo ln -s /opt/spotify/spotify-client/spotify /usr/bin/spotify
