How to install Spotify on Fedora 17 64bit

Spotify only provides an installer for Ubuntu on their website but you can also run it on Fedora with these extra steps.

  1. Download the Spotify rpm package from https://www.dropbox.com/s/4mi31ngl7v38iq6/spotify-client-0.8.3.278.g21c7566.632-2.x86_64.rpm. This file has been converted from Ubuntu’s deb format to Fedora’s rpm format. If you would like to convert the package yourself you can download the latest Spotify version from http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/ and convert it with the alien -r command (easiest done on Ubuntu).

2, Install all needed libraries

sudo yum install qtwebkit libpng-compat

Spotify expects different file names for some libraries, so create all of the following symbolic links.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.10 /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libssl.so.10 /usr/lib64/libssl.so.0.9.8 sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnss3.so /usr/lib64/libnss3.so.1d sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnssutil3.so /usr/lib64/libnssutil3.so.1d sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libsmime3.so /usr/lib64/libsmime3.so.1d sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libplc4.so /usr/lib64/libplc4.so.0d sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libnspr4.so /usr/lib64/libnspr4.so.0d

  1. Install Spotify

sudo rpm -ivh --nodeps spotify-client-0.8.3.278.g21c7566.632-2.x86_64.rpm

  1. You can now run Spotify by typing spotify in the command line or by going to Applications > Sound & Video > Spotify (The Spotify icon might only appear after you restarted the Gnome Shell (Press Alt-F2 then type restart and press return)).
