Install Spotify via deb in Ubuntu/Linux Mint

I usually prefer not to use a repository to install non-free software. Spotify makes it easy to install their Linux preview version via a .deb installer (for 64-bit):

# Download from http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/
# Replace VERSION with whichever version number that is listed
wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client-gnome-support_VERSION_all.deb
wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client-qt_VERSION_all.deb
wget http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client_VERSION_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i spotify*.deb

If there are missing dependencies, run sudo apt-get install -f

You have to manually update the Spotify client when there’s a new version. The alternative is to install directly via repository, look here.
