    How To Make spotify-0.9.4.183-4-i686 Work
    Submitted By: admin Date: June 11, 2014, 11:46:40 PM Views: 1755

    These instructions apply only to the 32-bit version of spotify-0.9.4.183.

    The issue with the 32-bit version of spotify is that the executable is looking for the file resources.zip in the directory /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client/spotify/Data. In short, it doesn't exist there. The file resources.zip actually resides in /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client/Data.

    To work around this issue, follow these instructions:

    Modify /usr/bin/spotify, changing it from this:

    Code: [Select]
    #!/bin/sh
    #
    # Uses alternative libs
    # Passes all parametrs to spotify

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/spotify/libs/ /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client/spotify "$@"

    To this:

    Code: [Select]
    #!/bin/sh
    #
    # Uses alternative libs
    # Passes all parametrs to spotify

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/spotify/libs/ /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client/spotify-exec "$@"

    Note the change made to the name of the spotify executable, from spotify to spotify-exec.

    Now, change directory to /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client:

    Code: [Select]
    cd /usr/share/spotify/spotify-client
    Rename spotify to spotify-exec:

    Code: [Select]
    mv spotify spotify-exec
    Make a new directory named spotify:

    Code: [Select]
    mkdir spotify
    Change directory into the new spotify directory:

    Code: [Select]
    cd spotify
    Now create a symbolic link to the Data directory one level up:

    Code: [Select]
    ln -sf ../Data Data
    Now you can start spotify.

    The spotify-0.9.4.183-4-i686 package provided via the bluestar repository has these modifications in place. However, the above modifications will work for any 32-bit sub-version of spotify-0.9.4.183.

    Cheers
