Good point… Article updated. Thank you



Thanks a lot. After an upgrade to Bionic Beaver from 17.10, the package libcurl3 needs to be installed for spotify to be able to get installed. Just: sudo apt install libcurl3

When it comes to install Spotify on Ubuntu so that we can listen to Spotify songs and playlists on Linxu devices, there are some ways to make it possible, like Snap install Spotify and Debian install Spotify
As for me, instead of installing Spotify on Linux, I perfer to download Spotify songs to MP3 with the help of AudFree Spotify Music Converter and then I can play Spotify file offline on Linux without problem.
