Spotify client

Latest Spotify client re-packaged from the Ubuntu packages for supported Fedora and RHEL/CentOS distributions.spotify-client

This repository requires that multimedia libraries not bundled with Spotify. For this reason, it requires the multimedia repository to be enabled or alternatively RPMFusion.

Package information

This package tries to comply as maximum to the Fedora Packaging Guidelines; this means the packages has debuginfo packages, default Fedora’s GCC compile time options (where possible) and standard locations for binaries, data and docs.

The provided client is binary only and compiled for Ubuntu, so the Fedora package de-assembles the original Ubuntu package and moves all files in the appropriate places. To overcome library conflicts, the package contains symlinks from Fedora system libraries to match the original Ubuntu names, adds native Ubuntu OpenSSL libraries and leaves RUNPATH enabled for finding libraries on its own.

$ cd /usr/lib64/spotify-client
$ ls -l lib*
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 92543584 Jun  4 14:53
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root  1965440 Jun  8 21:41
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root  1456016 Jun  4 14:53
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root   387432 Jun  8 21:41
$ chrpath -l spotify
spotify: RPATH=$ORIGIN

Instead of bundling Ubuntu’s libgcrypt library along with OpenSSL; it uses the compat-libgcrypt package from ssaavedra/compat-libcrypt COPR repository.

Supported distributions:

  • Fedora 23 – i686/x86_64
  • Fedora 24 – i686/x86_64
  • Fedora 25 – i686/x86_64
  • RHEL/CentOS 7 – x86_64

The package requires ffmpeg-libs to enable playback of local files. You can install them by enabling the Multimedia repository or RPMFusion.

Starting from Fedora 25, the Spotify client is available for installation by default also in Gnome Software.



To install the repository on a supported Fedora 22+ distribution, run as root the following command:

dnf config-manager --add-repo=

To do the same on CentOS/RHEL:

yum-config-manager --add-repo=

Then, to install the client and its data files, perform the following command:

# yum -y install spotify-client


Just open an issue to the specific package on Github.

    You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

    And I checked my libgrcrypt

    I’m wondering is there any trick to get it working. Thanks

    1. I’m uploading a new build that for Fedora 21+ provides the old libgcrypto 1.5.4 libraries and does not require them. Give an hour for the upload.

      The client is a piece of junk, I suggest to use the web page or Chrome app for using Spotify on Linux.

      1. After today’s update I’m getting:

        spotify: error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32

        Tried to link to system libraries instead, but then I get :

        /usr/lib64/spotify-client/Data/ version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by spotify)

        I’d gladly use a webapp instead, but I can’t control it from my keyboard 🙁

  2. Has anyone got this working on latest Fedora 21 TC1? I was able to install it,but nothing happens when I click the spotify icon.

  3. Broken on F21.

    spotofy: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    1. Will fix it when getting back access to my laptop; since the client is never updated, on Fedora 21 this needs another library bundled inside. The fat Spotify client is a piece of junk.

  4. I can’t play local mp3 files.
    I installed ffmpeg package, and ldd `which spotify` sees correctly But trying to play any file causes hiding playback position and waiting for “nothing”.

    1. Hello, thanks!

      Yes I thought about it, but the binary files cannot be redistributed (hence they cannot be included in RPMFusion) and there’s already the lpf-spotify-client package that builds the final package on your system. Unfortunately, I have a different view on how this should be packaged.

  5. Hi,

    I just add the fedora repo and tryed to install spotify, but i got the following error :

    ▸ sudo yum install spotify
    Modules complémentaires chargés : langpacks [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found
    Essai d'un autre miroir.
    Aucun paquet spotify disponible.
    Erreur : Rien à faire

    And some info:

    ▸ uname -a
    Linux pfa-fedora 3.17.6-200.fc20.i686 #1 SMP Mon Dec 8 15:42:32 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Is their a way to build from source?

    Thank’s for you help.

  6. Found a bug when using apps in spotify. Like when using musiXmatch and selecting a song in a playlist the whole thing flickers when not a song link is selected.

    1. Unfortunately the Spotify client is a binary compiled for a different distribution over which I have no control at all. This is just repackaging of it.

    1. Some libraries are too old for it, I’m sorry but it wouldn’t work unless you pack all the new libraries in the package.

  7. Si tu vieja te dijo alguna vez que sos groso, no te mentió, gracias por el repo.
    Btw, quizás te interese hostearlo en Copr?

    1. Please write in english. If it’s here, it’s because it can not be imported in Fedora or RPMFusion. Spotify client in particular, is a repack of the binary blobs for Ubuntu.

  8. I hava Spotify client running under Fedora 21. I would be fine if sometimes Spotity crashes. It is not stable, but I don’t know under what conditions this happens. Any suggestion?

    Thank you

    1. [To correct some typos…]
      I have Spotify client running under Fedora 21. It would be fine if sometimes Spotity wouldn’t crash. It is not stable, but I don’t know under what conditions this happens. Any suggestion?

  9. Hi! Added the repo and installed the package few days ago. I’m on Fedora 21, and Spotify used to work just fine until yesterday, when it began to crash after a little while. the output is “segmentation fault (core dump created)” . Is this happened to some of you too? I hope for suggestions to fix the issue, I’m a recent Fedora user and I don’t have that much experience..

    1. The same is happening to me. It’s a segmentation fault which means that the client which is essentially the client is looking for non-existing memory allocation. That’s why it’s crashing.

      If it was working fine before (as mine was) and it suddenly started doing it, then it’s likely a Fedora update that has changed something in the C libraries.

      There’s not much we can do. 🙁

  10. @Dave I felt it had to do something with the updates too.

    @Slaanesh I see.

    Thanks however for the explanations and the good work done 🙂

    1. @Mark – load up your terminal and type ‘spotify’ without the quotes.

      Start playing your music or whatever causes it to stop, and copy and paste the last few lines of the output from the terminal. I’m curious if your’s is a segmentation fault too.

      1. I have talked on #spotify IRC channel about this cause it crashing for me as well, and I found another person who got this problem. Some guy who claim to work at Spotify told, he’ll try to forward our problem to devs, but no response about it yet.

        just in case:
        It segfaults for me in about 40-50 seconds after starting song. Funny thing: doesn’t crash when I started Spotify with interrupted song (play position is not in 0:00). After that song finishes, it crash after 40-50 seconds when starting playing another track I select.

        It even segfaults when I click File → Exit.

  11. sudo yum downgrade gtk2-immodule-xim gtk2

    Just did it, and it seems to work. It used to segfault when I clicked file-> logout and now it’s not doing it.

  12. Hi, I’m having some issues, I don’t know what’s happening, but, when the music’s time is around 40 seconds, Spotify just closes by himself.

    1. The updated gtk2 version fixes the problem and was released.
      sudo yum update
      … and spotify works fine again. Nice.

  13. I know it exists, but it seems to drift as unmaintained. The package doesn’t work. Seeing that you have done the fixes in your rpm made me wish you could advise on fixing (if not taking over maintenance of) the package 🙂

    1. Well, actually I was in touch with the maintainer when he created the package, and he preferred his own approach (much more complicated) for it instead of mine.

  14. Thanks so much for this, I use spotify alot at work and this was one of the main things that was keeping me from moving over to Fedora

  15. Either I’m blind or I can’t find a way to buy you a beer (or coffee) on this site. I use several of your repositories at home and at work, so I’d like to send a little thank you in a monetary form your way. Is that possible?

    1. Hello, thanks for your support. I’ve added Paypal and Bitcoin donation buttons in the main page, at the bottom of the left frame!

    1. Not really. Fedora 22 is the last release I’ve been tracking from Rawhide, and it has been a real pain considering that RPMFusion is still MIA for it. After the new Fedora release I will be tracking only released distributions or close-to-be-released ones.

  16. Hi, I have been happily using this for some time now. Recently (few days ago) sound output stopped working, everything seemingly works but there is no sound. I see spotify in ‘sound config’ application list so it at least connects to pulseaudio.

    Has anyone else ran into same problem?

    I am using Fedora 21 x86_64, everything up to date.

    1. OK, found my problem. For some odd reason pulseaudio insisted on using the HDMI sink for spotify even though I normally don’t have any audio capable HDMI devices connected.

      Forcing the PULSE_SINK worked out.

  17. On Fedora 22, when using DNF rather than Yum (default installation):

    sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=
    sudo dnf install spotify-client -y

  18. Not working on Fedora 22 Beta 3 as of 5/18/15. Works great on fedora 21. Any plans to get this going by the time Fedora 22 comes out?

    1. There is no such a “plan”. The binary is compiled for Ubuntu, using Ubuntu libraries and paths. I repackage it anytime a new version is available adding links and Ubuntu libraries where appropriate.

      As written before, my suggestion is to use the web page and not the fat client. The client might work or not work entirely in the future.

  19. Hi,

    any idea? :/

  20. Just a quick typo fix : on fedora 22 your wrote :
    dnf-config-manager –add-repo=

    dnf config-manager –add-repo= (notice the first dash is removed, config-manager is an argument of dnf, not a standalone app)

    Thank you so much for sharing your work !

  21. Thanks for this article! By the way, when will you drop the 32-bit version of the package? I am trying to install it to my Fedora 22 32-bit (MATE compiz), still could not finish it.

    Please help..

    1. Thanks, I will add it. The dbus-x11 package is required by almost all desktop environments, just by curiosity what are you running as your main desktop?

  22. Hi, I’ve just updated to version 1.0.7 of the Spotify Client. This new version is a complete disaster! No integration into the desktop environment(media keys etc.), no minimizing to tray, missing icon… Could you please provide somehow the old version(0.9.) in the repository? Maybe named spotify-client-legacy? I don’t want to use this new piece of sh**. Thanks, Marius

    1. I can’t agree more. Moreover, the menu is hidden, so I can’t switch to offline mode. And full screen is forced if your monitor is not wide enough.

      Thanks for putting the old version back somewhere.

        1. Thank you very much! I totally understand that this is meant to be temporary and I hope the issues will be fixed on 1.0 soon.

  23. After the last update (v. it doesn’t work anymore with Gnome-Shell media player indicator extension… Can you confirm it?

  24. Hi,
    I’m using it on Fedora 22.
    However the updated Spotify client does not integrate into the desktop anymore.
    There is no tray icon 🙁
    So each time I accidentally click the close button and it shuts down instead of going into the tray.

    Any fix for this?

  25. Just installed Spotify on Fedora 22 64-bit and it loads “fullscreen”, no menus are shown. What it’s worth, I can’t see Gnome’s top toolbar, or use the Activities gesture, so I must change application using the super key or alt-tab.

    Is this a known issue or is there a way to get back the menus?


  26. It looks like something went wrong with my last comment…

    I have just installed Fedora 22 x64 using GNOME and used your repo to install Spotify. Spotify starts as “full screen” (or at least it looks like this) and hides all system toolbars, including the Activities button and hot corner gesture. I do not see any application menus, but a tiny button that gives me preferences, account settings and such that do not show anything related to fullscreen.

    Is this a known issue or is there a way for Spotify to behave like a normal application? I must use Alt+Tab or “super” key to switch to another app when this is running which is very annoying…

    Thanks 🙂 Great work btw.

  27. I’m having many issues with the latest 1.0.7 version on Fedora 22 (Gnome):
    – Menu bar is hidden: I can’t switch to offline mode for instance.
    – The client always runs in full screen on my 13 inch laptop, I didn’t find a way to get to normal mode.
    – As Marco reported, MPRIS interface isn’t available to manage the player from gnome-shell for instance.

    Might it be possible to put the 0.9.x rpm somewhere so we could have a usable client until these issues are fixed? (I didn’t save it and I can’t find it anywhere). Thanks!

  28. Hmm, on Fedora 22 all I get is:
    Warning: failed loading ‘/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-spotify.repo’, skipping.

    Same goes for the steam repo. Am I missing something here? :I

      1. Oh yes, that was it. You think “dnf config-manager –add-repo…” would set it up with the right permissions, strange.


  29. The spec file contains the wrong hostname. (It uses %{name} instead of spotify. This resolves to spotify-client…)

  31. Is Fedora 20 no longer supported? I see it listed under Supported Distributions, but there is no longer a fedora-20 directory in your repository.

    1. Fedora 20 is EOL since end of June, I’ve removed all folders from the repositories. Will update the pages accordingly. Thanks.

  32. Thanks for the great package.

    Just noticing that this Spotify package does not support MPRIS2 (for Media player indicator by eon in gnome-shell). Another package I found some time ago did support this, any idea where this regression may come from?

  33. I’ve got this problem:

    Any solution?
    Btw thanks a lot for this package, I hope it will work on my machine soon and I’ll start listening 😉

  34. Hi,
    I have upgraded the spotify-client to the latest version (

    Every time I turn on the application , it shows an error:

    spotify-client quit unexpectedly, spotify killed by SIGABRT, /proc/self/exe --type=gpu-process --channel=3240.0.1136871389 --no-sandbox --lang=en-US --log-severity=disable --product-version=Spotify/ --supports-dual-gpus=false --gpu-driver-bug-workarounds=2,28,31,44,53 --disable-accelerated-video-decode --gpu-vendor-id=0x10de --gpu-device-id=0x1381 --gpu-driver-vendor=NVIDIA --gpu-driver-version=352.30 --lang=en-US --log-severity=disable --product-version=Spotify/

    I am on Fedora 22, with all patches and updates.

  35. For people who have the same problem as me => proxy preferences not saved for example… I used “strace” to understand and I see that spotify doesn’t find the `~/.config/spotify` directory.

    So, before to launch spotify the first time, you have to do it only once in a terminal:

    mkdir ~/.config/spotify/

    That’s all, Sptofy client can now connect through proxy. I’m surprised that no one has reported this bug… I will do it as soon as I can.

    Thanks for this repo !

  36. Are you planning on releasing rpm for version 1.0.13 soon? I’m asking because it has dbus support – something many people have been waiting for.

    1. Building it now, it will be available in a few hours. Where do you know it has dbus support? Is there a changelog published somewhere?

  37. Hi Everybody
    I have this error when I try to run Spotify client on my fedora 22 :”Service is temporarily unvailable. Please try again later”. Someone encounts the same problem ? Thanks

  38. when I run spotify on centos 7:
    # spotify
    spotify: /lib64/ no version information available (required by spotify)

    spotify: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/spotify-client/ undefined symbol: g_type_class_adjust_private_offset

    1. The package depends on RPMFusion packages. In the previous cycle (Fedora 22), I built also the package for rawhide, but that proved to be a complete nightmare; as I had to rebuild and keep updated most of the packages that were in RPMFusion. On top of this, at the moment that they finally woke up, I had to make sure there were no upgrade issues between my packages and the official RPMFusion ones. So I’m sorry, I’m not doing it unless RPMFusion is available.

  39. Hi, The 2 last updates didn’t work for me. Spotify is running but there is no sound. Is there a way to get an old version ?

    1. These are errors coming from the embedded Chrome runtime. They are not blocking errors, and actually I can see them almost everywhere there’s a Chrome runtime embedded (Steam, for example).

  43. Thank you for porting spotify to fedora.

    But I have one little problem:
    Spotify is not displayed as running app in taskbar.
    I’m running F23 x86_64 with Cinnamon 2.8.6.

    1. The bundle is a binary only application, you should point this upstream. I think they switched to appindicator or gnome 3 notifications. Not sure though.

  44. You rock! Thanks so much for putting this together. This version actually works better on Fedora than the Ubuntu version does on Lubuntu 15.10 where the Friends functionality is broken.

  45. I’m usign Centos 7 / RHEL 7, when execute spotify, I recieve those messages:

    spotify: /lib64/ no version information available (required by spotify)

    spotify: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/spotify-client/ undefined symbol: g_type_class_adjust_private_offset

  46. Do you keep old versions of the spotify rpm anywhere? Looks like they messed up dbus support in again and I’d like to go back to where it worked better. I can’t find the old rpm in the repo anymore though.

  47. Hello. I’m using the Spotify client and I do have the ffmpeg-libs library installed, but my client keeps crashing anytime I try to play the local files. Any thoughts?

    1. Not really, the client relies on a “whitelisted” set of FFMPeg libraries, but since being a binary blob it’s not possible to recompile or debug it:

  48. Is it possible to find older versions of this package somewhere? Spotify 1.0.26 comes with broken mpris2 support, so I would like to downgrade to previous version.

    1. False alarm. Looks like it was problem with dbus on my system. Still, it would be nice if you could keep previous version on the repository in case something breaks. Anyway, thanks for good work!

  49. This is currently not installable for me. Running “sudo dnf repository-packages fedora-spotify list all” only shows compat-libgcrypt{,-devel}.{i686,x86_64}

    1. Something wrong here. The package is there:

      #  dnf repository-packages fedora-spotify list all

  50. It seems there is a new version on the testing repository:

    Spotify devs claim it fixes MPRIS2. Anyone tried it yet on Fedora?

  51. Hey, so i tried to install it, and it gives me the following:

    Error: nothing provides ffmpeg-libs needed by spotify-client-

    Many thanks,

  52. In Fedora 24, I had to remove xterm -e “wget …” and execute wget directly in shell, because it wasn’t working otherwise

      1. Hello, I don’t understand. The path you specified is a link to a binary. What are you referring to?

        $ ls -al /usr/bin/spotify 
        lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 33 Jun  9 12:07 /usr/bin/spotify -> /usr/lib64/spotify-client/spotify

  53. This is awesome, thanks for maintaining this!

    Is there a way to install spotify locally, as I don’t have sufficient permissions to dnf config-manager –add-repo, or even to dnf –enable-repo?

    1. Really? Then the package is not very useful. Try to unpack it, create a script and set the appropriate library paths before starting it.

  54. hello friends! i am trying to listen to local M4A’s using spotify, but it either crashes or does nothing when trying to play one; any suggestions ? (already installed ffmpeg-libs)

  55. Today’s update is trying to install compat-openssl, but it’s conflicting with openssl package already installed on Fedora 23! Halp!

    1. Can you paste the output here? I’m not seeing how it could conflict with OpenSSL 1.0.2 and its shared libraries versions’.

      1. I actually upgraded to F24 and removed the openssl1 package, so now everything’s okay. But, from what I remember, it was having file conflicts (lib64/ and lib64/

        1. I don’t ship a package called openssl1; neither Fedora nor RPMFusion. I’ve seen that it comes from the postinstaller RPMs on Sourceforge.

          1. Puede borrar los paquetes de la caché ejecutando ‘dnf clean packages’.
            Error: Transaction check error:
            el archivo /usr/lib64/ de la instalación de compat-openssl-1.0.0t-1.fc23.x86_64 entra en conflicto con el archivo del paquete openssl1-1.0.0-3.fc23.x86_64

          2. Don’t know if you’ve noticed, but everyone here writes in english.
            Just remove the package openssl1. I’m guaranteeing compatibility with Fedora and RPMFusion repositories, not everything that’s around.
