Install Spotify (natively) on openSUSE 12.2

This Post has moved here

Looks like we don’t have to pay for an account anymore! Too bad they don’t have an rpm built yet 😦 but it looks like a Fedora rpm is at least on the way.

1. Install dependencies
zypper in libcryptopp-5_6_1-0 rpm-build alien

2. Get the debian package from Spotify
wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-1_amd64.deb

3. Convert the debian to an rpm
sudo alien -r spotify-client_0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-1_amd64.deb

4. Install the rpm
sudo zypper in spotify-client-0.8.4.103.g9cb177b.260-2.x86_64.rpm

5. Link dependencies
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

6. Run Spotify!

Enjoy!
