First backup your sources.list
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
now open sources.list for editing:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and add these 2 new lines at the bottom
Code: [Select]
###### Spotify repo - added by Rivers
deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free
SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Back in the terminal add the GPG key with:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59
update the package cache:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
and install spotify-client:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install spotify-client
You'll then find it in the menu at

menu > Sound & Video > Spotify

They should definitely work .. I wrote them whilst installing it ;)

But if necessary you can download the latest 23 and 64bit versions as  .deb files from the link in my last response.
(you only need the spotify-client package, NOT the spotify-client-gnome-support or spotify-client-qt packages)

But be aware, just downloading and installing the deb .. whilst that will work, it won't receive automatic updates.

Thank you so much as I've been suffering from the lackness of Spotify on Peppermint 5 for months. I followed the instructions and now I've got a working Spotify client.
Thanks.  :)
