for starters: a hug mess happened and i had to reinstall debian on my laptop. i guess it’s the first time i did a fresh install due to an unlucky upgrade/dist-upgrade. couldn’t identify who caused the mess, but after so many changes in the sources.list, i couldn’t go back to jessie nor proceed to stretch (and to be honest, having tried sid just made things way worse haha!).
so… spotify for linux requires you to add their repository to the configuration. easy task:
# echo deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list # apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys BBEBDCB318AD50EC6865090613B00F1FD2C19886 # apt-get update && apt-get install spotify-client
however… it complained about the absence of libssl1, which was present in the previous debian’s version (jessie). along with this library, complaints about missing libavcodec54* were also seen. i changed the version of spotify’s repository to unstable first, but to no avail. then i changed it to testing, and installed libssl1 by hand:
# sed -i 's/unstable/testing/' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list # dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u6_amd64.deb
after that, ran again
# apt-get update && apt-get install spotify-client
and voila: habemus spotify again.
i) given i haven’t tried with the stable version of the client in the repository configuration, this will be left as an exercise to the reader. ;) next problem in line: cinelerra & the deb-multimedia repository…
ii) sudo is for losers. heheh :D
