A number of you have emailed me saying that you cannot get Spotify running on your Fedora Workstation 22 installation, so I decided to create a quick post and video on how I get it running on my favorite operating system.
Here’s the video, I have also written up all of the commands used and any other information to help you install Spotify. This was installed on a fresh Fedora 22 installation with RPM Fusion enabled on the system.
As you can see by the video, it’s quick and easy and just works.
Please make sure your system is up to date and that the RPMFusion Repos have been enabled on your system, if you do not know how to do this then please see this post.
Adding the Spotify repository.
Thanks to Slanesh he has created a Spotify repository so we can easily install the package.
Open up a terminal and su into root. Then type the following
dnf config-manager --add-repo=http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-spotify.repo
Then go for the installation by doing the following (still as root)
# dnf install spotify-client
Ok, now what?
Now all you need to do is go to your dash and start typing Spotify and it should be there, click – run and enjoy.
Hope this helps some of you that have been emailing me.
