How To Install Spotify on Fedora 23 the Easy Way

Spotify has an official apt repository for Debian/Ubuntu/Linux Mint users. There’s no official rpm package for Fedora users. This tutorial shows how to install Spotify on Fedora 23 via third-party repository. It’s really quick and easy.

Install Spotify on Fedora 23

Add Fedora Spotify repo from negativo17.org by running the following command in a terminal window.

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-spotify.repo

The above command will create a fedora-spotify.repo file under /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. In case you are interested, here’s the content of this repo file.

[fedora-spotify]
name=negativo17 - Spotify
baseurl=http://negativo17.org/repos/spotify/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgkey=http://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
gpgcheck=1

[fedora-spotify-source]
name=negativo17 - Spotify - Source
baseurl=http://negativo17.org/repos/spotify/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS
enabled=0
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgkey=http://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
gpgcheck=1

Now install Spotify client.

sudo dnf install spotify-client

Spotify can be started from applications menu or by running the following command in terminal:

spotify

Enjoy beautiful music !!

To remove it, run

sudo dnf remove spotify-client

You can also go to http://negativo17.org/repos/spotify/ to download the Spotify rpm package and its dependency (compat-libgcrypt) via HTTP. Then install it using rpm command.

sudo rpm -ivh compat*.rpm spotify*.rpm

This method is helpful to those who experience slow download speed when installing Spotify from repository.
