Long gone are the days when we had to buy music albums to listen to our favorite artists. Now, there is Spotify, which is a service where with an account you can listen to many commercial music albums. Sounds good? Well, today you will learn how to install Spotify on CentOS 9 Stream.
What is Spotify?
Spotify is a digital music service that is emerging as the most popular and widely used in the world. It has an impressive catalog, and it is very unlikely that you will not find your favorite artists.
Yes, on Spotify you will find millions of songs and podcast episodes. So, whatever you’re doing, you’ll always be able to listen to music because it has clients for almost any device.
Spotify is supported on Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS and more. Therefore, you will be able to install it on Linux without too much trouble.
Install Spotify on CentOS 9 Stream
Spotify is not present in the official CentOS 9 Stream repositories, but it is present in two very popular stores (or repositories) such as Snapcraft and Flathub. Both are linked to Snap and Flatpak.
Installing Spotify on CentOS 9 Stream using Snap
Before installing Spotify, you must install Snap
Snap is not included in CentOS 9 Stream, but you can install it without too much trouble.
First, update the system completely
sudo dnf update
Then, enable the EPEL repository with these two commands
sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled crb sudo dnf install epel-release epel-next-release epel-next-release
Finally, check if it was added
sudo dnf repolist
Then, if so, install snap
sudo dnf install snapd
Create the necessary symbolic link and start the service
sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snapd/snap/ /snap sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
Then install the
sudo snap install core
And then, install Spotify
sudo snap install spotify
Now you can run it from the main menu.
Getting Spotify with Flatpak
With Flatpak, the process is a bit easier because this technology is built into CentOS 9.
So, in the terminal, run this command to install Flatpak
sudo dnf install flatpak
Now add the Flathub repository where the program is located
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
And now install Spotify:
flatpak install flathub com.spotify.Client
Finally, run it from the main menu.
Uninstall Spotify on CentOS 9
If you installed it using Snap
sudo snap remove spotify
But in the case of Flatpak, you can run
flatpak uninstall flathub com.spotify.Client
This way, you will have no trace of Spotify on the system.
For many users, Spotify is vital because it provides access to music and podcast with various plans to suit you. So installing Spotify on a system like CentOS 9 is a must.
