Spotify para Linux

Muchos de nuestros desarrolladores que trabajan con Linux, evidentemente les gusta escuchar música mientras programan, y echando un vistazo a las peticiones que recibimos, parece que no son los únicos. Por lo tanto, presentamos con orgullo una versión preliminar de Spotify para Linux.

Desarrollada por nuestros fantásticos programadores durante “hack days” y noches de insomnio, esta versión de Spotify comparte la mayoría de las características de nuestras versiones para Mac OS X y Windows. Sin embargo, lamentablemente hay algunas limitantes en cuanto a la decodificación de archivos de música locales en Linux, por lo tanto, no hemos incluido soporte para importar tus archivos locales en esta versión.

Por ser una versión preliminar, no ofrecemos soporte oficial, pero ya que estamos utilizándola nosotros mismos intentaremos que se mantenga a la par de las versiones para Windows y Mac. Como aún no hemos encontrado una manera segura e idónea de mostrar la publicidad, la versión para Linux sólo está disponible para suscriptores de Spotify Premium.

Asi qué, ¿cómo consigues Spotify para Linux? La hemos compilado en paquetes para Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 10.04 package.

Esperamos que la disfrutes tanto como nosotros, ¡y sigue enviando tus ideas y sugerencias!


  1. U might wanna mention that it does not work for free/open users. Really annoying to notice after you install it.

  2. @Joja70
    Does “As we haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium subscribers.” suffice as mentioning that it does not work for free users? 😛

    Anyway I love the idea of a native client, keep up the wonderful work

  3. Using Ubuntu 10.10. Works fine on it, but the search textbox does not accept key presses sometimes (probably after hibernate, not sure) and play/pause button etc. shortcuts do not work.

  4. Premium is too steep for this man’s wallet! I would happily upgrade from a free account to an unlimited to use this though :]

  5. How’s the development coming along on the Linux client?

    There’s still no support for local music and the volume control still won’t work. I really love using the native client, and want to be able to use the full service.

  6. Shame there is only for unlimited or premium users. I’ll never be a spotify user if I can’t check it out with a native client as other users 😦 Wine is not an acceptable solution for me

  7. I’m not able to adjust volume in spotify. I’m using Ubuntu. Common problem?

  8. Qué bien, pero me gustaría una versión para Linux para los que no somos Premium!

    Great, but I would love Spotify for Linux fot those who are not Premium!

  9. It’s pretty ironic how you have you don’t have to pay in a commercial OS but have to pay in a FREE one…

  10. I have a problem with this version where, for want of a better description, the program often behaves as if on a slow internet connection. Disc images take ages to appear, tracks don’t start playing for several seconds and pause frequently during playback. Re-starting the program or re-booting the machine doesn’t help.

    However, running the Windows version through Wine, everything is fine.

    Any thoughts?

  11. Thought I’d solved it: logging out and logging in again seemed to ‘unclog’ it.

    Went out for a couple of hours and tried to re-start, and now the Linux preview version sticks in Offline mode indefinitely showing ‘Error 112’ (my internet connection is working), and the Wine version won’t even log on, saying something about firewall and proxy settings.


  12. It’s a great step, but so far I can’t see any advantage over running it in Wine. In fact with this version, the volume doesn’t work, and it seems that off-line storage doesn’t either. These are all things that worked perfectly under wine.
