Spotify in Linux


I have just changed over from Windows and want to use Spotify in Ubuntu bit to do this I think I need Wine. However in the Ubuntu Software centre it says that wine is "not available for your hardware architecture". What does this meen and is there a way around this?

Any help apreciated Cheers!

You do need wine. Also, if you're running 64 bit Ubuntu I would recommend installing 32bit Wine.

Try this command from the terminal to see if it installs:

Code:
sudo apt-get install wine
if that doesn't work, whilst in there try this command and paste the output in your reply:

Code:
uname -a

OK, in that case try this also:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
then try

Code:
sudo apt-cache search wine
You obviously need to be connected to the internet in order for this to work.
