spotify on fedora 16 .. login problems
 
I've installed spotify on Fedora 16.

But I can't login. Can't see what the problem is.

I had it working fine in Ubuntu 11.11.

I have a 5 a month account.

Password works on the site itself but not in the application.

Don't know where to start... some log files? wireshark?

please expand on that -- how did you install it ?
there web page says it has a fedora 13 build ( way to old in "fedora years" like "dog years" but for fedora)

Hi

I installed it using this guide (im running 64bit)

http://www.sysadminworld.com/2011/in...dora-16-64bit/

If I go onto the spotify site using chrome I can login with my user details.

Using the application it says

"Login failed: the username or password is incorrect"

Ah solution...... working now - use username instead of email address

Just reset my password and did a clean reinstall. Cannot login using snow leopard.

Was able to fix this issue by using my username instead of my email address. Is there a problem with logging in with an email address now?

I can't remember the last problem I had.

But I decided to run spotify via "play on linux".

So im running spotify via wine essentially. Seems fine though. Dead easy to setup.
