Howto install .deb file or rpm file Spotify

Postby rexpretor » 01 Apr 2011, 08:04

Hi all,

I just wondered if anyone knows how to install spotify by using a .deb-file or rpm-file.

I have found a link to the spotify linux site

Best regards,

I installed this on Archlinux and it worked great. Would love if it could be ported to FreeBSD, but it seems like the source itself hasn't been released? Never got [FILE]depotify[/FILE] to work on FreeBSD either :-(

Hi, I never had reason to install Linux applications e.g from [file].rpm[/file] format, but it looks that it is possible. Look here; Installing Linux Programs (RPMs), Installing RPMs on FreeBSD and of course Linux Binary Compatibility (especially 10.2.3 Installing a Random Linux RPM Based Application).

Generally you will need: install e.g. [port]archivers/rpm[/port] (there is also [port]archivers/rpm4[/port] and [port]archivers/rpm5[/port] - read about the differences between these versions!), setting up Linux compatibility (see link above), Spotify - of course, and... hope you will succeed. :- )
