See the post for how to install spotify on a Linux Client (RHEL 6 x64 in my case).
This post is for how to upgrade.
2012-02-01: Updated, added –nodeps to the rpm upgrade.
2013-01-08: This has been confirmed to work with spotify-0.8.8, updated typo in symlink part.
Why? http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client-qt_0.6.1.309.gb871a7d-1_amd64.deb is out!
Is available. Maybe right-click works?? =)
- Get the .deb into a place where you can run the program ‘alien’. I have ubuntu in a virtual machine so fired that up, downloaded the .deb
- sudo alien –to-rpm spotify-client-qt_0.6.1.309.gb871a7d-1_amd64.deb
- e-mailed spotify-client-qt-0.6.1.309.gb871a7d-2.x86_64.rpm to myself
- save the .rpm, close spotify, and hit:
- sudo rpm -Uvh spotify-client-qt-0.6.1.309.gb871a7d-2.x86_64.rpm
- this failed, it needed
error: Failed dependencies:

whereis spotify ldd /usr/bin/spotify gives me: libssl.so.10 0> /usr/lib64/libssl.so.10 libcrypto.so.10 0> /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.10
sudo ln -s libssl.so.10 libssl.so.0.9.8
If still no go, some advise to rename/delete ~/.config/spotify and ~/.cache/spotify
If neither of the above still works, run
rpm -Uvh --nodeps spotify-client-qt-0.6.6.10.gbd39032.58-2.x86_64.rpm
It’s now possible to right-click on playlists! Also to click on ‘File’ works! Woop!
Right-click on artist worked a few times. Then after a while it stopped working. AGREGHA!!#45
(still crashes with Spotify 0.6.6.10)
I would guess that the problem lies with qt or webkit.
Sharing works though. It sucks a bit to not be able to add files to playlists. But clicking the star works so you can find the songs you don’t want to forget in there.
Scrobble/last.fm also works. Cannot select top list for another country.
