Can't install spotify on Opensuse 13.2


I am unable to install spotify on Opensuse 13.2.20150209. When I use "install-spotify" I get the following error message:

"link target doesn't exist (neither in build root nor in installed system): /opt/spotify/spotify-client/lib/libcef.so -> /opt/spotify/spotify-client/libcef.so
Add the package providing the target to neededforbuild and Requires
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.VP4z0R (%install)"

I have tried installing appjs-0.0.20-1.fc20.x86_64.rpm but to no avail

Regards,

Paul Cornford

for starters that rpm is for a VERY!!! different operating system
that "fc20" means this is for a 64 bit install of FEDORA 20 and NOT OpenSUSE 13

very few things will cross over distros

I am assuming you are using zypper


"spotify-installer" is in packman
Code:
su -
zypper in spotify-installer
Quote:
zypper info spotify-installer

Information for package spotify-installer:
-----------------------------------------
Repository: Packman Repository
Name: spotify-installer
Version: 0.9.11.27.g2b1a638.81-3.1
Arch: x86_64
Vendor: http://packman.links2linux.de
Installed: No
Status: not installed
Installed Size: 20.5 KiB
Summary: Installer for Spotify desktop client
Description:
This is an automatic installer for the Spotify desktop client for
Linux, which circumvents the redistribution restrictions on the client
by:

- downloading the .deb from spotify.com
- installing required dependencies
- building an rpm
- installing the rpm

The process is intended to be as user-friendly as possible.
is this the installer you are using

or one of the many old github programs

so you installed the installer using zypper or the yast2 GUI"install and remove software"

did you read the "README.html" that the rpm installed?

file:///usr/share/doc/packages/spotify-installer/README.html
Quote:
Run "install-spotify" as a non-root user (e.g. from any terminal program).
the script will convert the Debain deb to a rpm

it may or may not work ???

it depends it you are using SUDO or not

i do not use "sudo" and "sudo" is NOT set up on my system, so it fails on my install of 13.2
however a rpm was MADE and is now in my home folder

so that can be installed


Code:
su -
### type in your root password when asked for ####

zypper in spotify-installer

### wait for it to finish THEN ###

exit 

install-spotify

### might ask for root password ? or not but the install might fail ##
then install the rpm made using zypper and a local install

Yes to all of your questions. But somehow I have managed to produce spotify-client-0.9.11.27.g2b1a638.81-1.nosrc.rpm although I am not sure how I got it. When I tried to install that using zypper it required libudev.so.0 () (libudev0-182-8.10.x86_64.rpm) which I managed to download. That solved the problem and I now have Spotify running. Thanks for the help.

Spent a day trying install.sh - This is how I got it done.

I tried the script. Failed.
I tried adding repo http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/
I tried adding spotify repo: http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/
and a half dozen other methods... Failures, bad files, bad signatures etc...
*(i'm running opensuse 13.2 / KDE / enlightenment)

This is what I did and it works Great! I can listen to last.fm or use Spotify-client...

* I had already installed (in YaST2) dpkg (deb package manager).
* Downloaded Spotify-client saved locally
* I also, already have my local 'download/apps/' directory added as a reop in YaST2 / zypper.
* Using YaST2, I installed the downloaded *.deb file from local repo, and chose to 'break dependency' on the ffmpeg version problem and finish install.
* Launched Spotify from kickoff (KDE) and signed in with facebook ( i already 'signed up' ).

Done. last.fm works, the Spotify client works.. I waited too, too long to do this.

Hope this helps someone else.
Landis.

New Install - Not the Same... used Spotify-Install script

Update...
Installed a 'new system' using same opensuse 13.2, same Dell hardware, etc...
Could NOT install the *.deb file, even with package dpkg installed and everything seemingly the same...

Had to install spotify-installer from opensuse repo, run script '# sh spotify-installer' as normal user, allow to download and build the RPM.

failed, as There is a Dependency that is MISSING, libgcrypt.so.11
I used the repo: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/ to install it.

Copied the RPM from ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/ to my local_-_Apps repo.
Ran Yast2 and installed Spotify.rpm with the libgcrypt dependency met.

Another Issue was that the facebook button did Not work on Spotify-client launch. I had to use my 'facebook email' (wasn't my main FB email, but is listed in FB acct and matched the email address in my spotify accout) and password as if I had a Spotify premium account.

Logged In. All is well. Have all my playlists as before, when using facebook as the login.

What a Pain in the Ass... : )

hope this helps.

Landis.
