Spotify – the popular streaming music service – has updated its Linux client with a few extra treats, part of which include some Mono-tastic tray icons for Ubuntu users.

To use Spotify for Linux you need to have a premium account.

Installing Spotify for Linux

Add this line to your Software Sources list:

deb stable non-free

Refresh/reload the list when prompted.

Open a terminal and add the repository key (this stops you being nagged when updating)

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 4E9CFF4E

gpg --export 4E9CFF4E |sudo apt-key add -

Now proceed to install the following packages via the Software Centre or the Terminal:

sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt spotify-client-gnome-support
